Upcycle Alpaca Blend Sport
When our mills spin our yarns, a small amount is left over from each batch. Instead of wasting it, we work with our mills to create new limited-edition yarns, and this year’s Upcycle Alpaca Sport, a sport weight blend of alpaca, wool, and acrylic, lends itself to sweaters, cowls, hats, and much more. It’s soft enough for next to skin wear, but rugged enough to keep you warm all winter long.
Upcycle is made with recycled fibers that vary in size, causing slight variations in yarn thickness from skein to skein. We recommend swatching before starting a project.
