Alpaca DK is a super soft double knitting yarn and is the big sister yarn to Banshee Yarns Cashmere lace. It is perfect for cuddly shawls, hats and mitts and lightwear sweaters.
This yarn is also available in undyed skeins. You can find them here.
Alpaca DK is 70% Baby Alpaca, 20% Silk and 10% Cashmere so it is gloriously soft and, when knit, it has a beautiful drape. The silk also gives it a beautiful shine. This is a great yarn for people who are allergic to wool.
Each 100g skein has 225m of yarn.
Three skeins of this yarn is enough to make our Touch Me shawl, which is available for free in our Simply the Simplest Shawl pattern book that you receive when you sign-up to our newsletter.
