Simply Alpaca Aran
You'd have to be an alpaca to get a more natural fiber, this is all of the compelling, next-to-skin softness of alpaca for the sustainably minded. The natural warmth of alpaca fiber combine to create a wonderful yarn for luxuriously cozy garments and accessories that knit up in a trice.
While Simply Alpaca's loose ply gives finished projects excellent drape, it also means this yarn can be worked on a variety of needle sizes to achieve different fabric densities. It's possible to use this yarn in worsted weight projects, however we recommend a larger Aran/HW gauge for an open, airy finished fabric. A larger gauge allows these beautiful fibers to bloom after blocking resulting in an even more luxurious project.
No dyes or bleach are used to process the yarn; a full spectrum of natural shades are created by meticulously sorting the fiber. As colors are naturally occurring, some variation from skein to skein is normal.
