Simply Alpaca Aran

$12.99 100g / Hank


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 with the heavier weight to create a wonderful yarn for luxuriously cozy garments and accessories that knit up in a trice. 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.

A Light-Worsted/DK (3). Soft, beautiful to knit with; great for stockinette with drape. I knit "Snowflower", a yoked fairisle sweater, hanging the drapey pure alpaca from a wool/alpaca stranded yoke at tunic length, split hem, detachable cowl. Excellent yarn in all ways; next to the skin fine. Mislabeled as Aran, but truly great using 4 mm needles; gorgeous fabric. Tricky to frog, but not impossible. Only one knot in five skeins.

This is a lovely soft yarn, but it does not even approach aran weight. The skein I received was about a DK weight, and a little less in some areas. My skein was very loosely plied and shed all over the place when just winding it.

Wow..wow..wow....as a user of alpaca from friends and family who own alpacas, just received my yarn and OH MY, this beats any I've used, yes, it will stretch being 100% but for my needs, this is wonderful, softest Ive ever felt, like cashmere, also a much lower cost, most mills have trouble getting it spun without the thick and thin texture, this is spun beautifully, cant wait to knit with but few other wips, will most defininitely buy Much more....love it!

I really like this yarn with its soft texture and lovely natural colors. However, like many other reviewers, I would NOT suggest this to be used on size 10-11 needles as the label recommends! Way too light for that....much better suited for size 4 at the highest, maybe size six double stranded. Nevertheless, the quality is excellent!

Stunning. Soft. I agree about the weight so I held it double for a hat. My daughter says it’s the softest and warmest hat I’ve made her. Definitely her favorite. Ordered more.
