Two of Peru’s best fibers–wool and alpaca–come together to create Altiplano, a stunning rustic yarn. With 65% wool, Altiplano has plenty of elasticity and memory, and the 35% alpaca provides a light halo after wet blocking. 

Altiplano features a woolen-spun construction, which means the fibers are not carded to align with each other before spinning. Allowing the fibers to be situated every which way creates pockets of air within the yarn that traps warmth, and it makes it more challenging for fibers to wiggle loose to create pills on the surface of a knit. Altiplano’s construction paired with its alpaca content creates less defined stitches that have an almost airbrushed look. It’s a great choice for low-texture cables, colorwork, and lace.
