Wearing an item made of Silkpaca is like wearing a cloud! This yarn is 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk, which makes it 100% luscious. Soft, silky, with just a bit of a halo. Despite being Malabrigo's thinnest yarn, it is plied and sturdy--perfect for lace projects, shawls, scarves and very special objects that are sure to become precious heirlooms.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from skein to skein. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. For Ball Winding services click here.
