Sale! Simply Alpaca Aran

$7.79 - $11.69 100g / Hank  Original Price: $12.99

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. Retail: $12.99

This beautiful alpaca DK is holding up extremely well to heavy wear in the sweater I knit last year. Little to no pilling. Still looks brand new at the end of the season. Lovely yarn to work with. Will use it again.

Worst KP yarn I have ever used. First of all, it is NOT Aran, it’s definitely more like a DK weight. I’m used to KP yarn being slightly thinner than other brands but this isn’t even close to the proper weight categorization. But my biggest beef is that it splits extremely easily. I’m an advanced knitter and the project I made this out of looks like it was made by a beginner. About the only positive thing I can say about it is that it’s soft. Such a disappointment.

I love this beautiful soft yarn and am currently knitting up a sweater but it should be categorized as DK / light worsted, not as Aran. I use US6mm/4.00mm needles

This is definitely not aran weight yarn, more like DK. Pay attention to the yards per gram. Nonetheless, I used it for a baby blanket so gauge was not critical. It's soft, warm, and very voluminous when folded. Turned out beautiful.

Absolutely, love this yarn! Bought color Alfonse, made cabled hat. It is very warm and soft.
