Alpacas are a domesticated species of the South American camelid. Baby Alpaca yarn is made from the undercoat of young animals, and is softer than regular alpaca. The yarn is easy to care for, strong, and warmer than the equivalent weight of wool, and also felts easily.
The Perran Yarns range currently includes two baby alpaca yarns:
– DK Baby Alpaca Linen Silk
– Chunky Baby Alpaca
Our Double Knitting weight baby alpaca yarn is luxuriously soft, blended with linen for drape and silk for extra sheen.
We have a beautiful Flowery Infinity Scarf knit kit available for this yarn, which has been developed as a collaboration with Yorkshire-based knitwear designer Sandra Nesbitt. The kit includes a fully-illustrated printed copy of the easy lace pattern, designed to use one skein of baby alpaca linen silk yarn in your choice of colour.
Our Chunky Baby Alpaca yarn is so soft you’ll just want to squoosh it! It’s the perfect choice for luxurious cosy winter accessories to snuggle into during cold weather.
