Alpacalyptic is an exclusive base for my shop!

The Alpaca are raised on a local farm (and are more pets than livestock) by a family friend. There are around a dozen Huacaya Alpaca on the farm in varying shades. At this time, I am leaving the fibers all natural and un-dyed, because they are just so beautiful in their natural state. The yarn is also milled locally, and has handspun qualities to it, meaning this yarn is not 100% uniform in construction, as my other yarn bases are. Because of this, yardage will vary per skein, but you will always receive at least 125 yards per skein. Anything over, is considered a bonus!

Alpaca is a wonderful fiber for those with allergies to wools. It is said to be hypoallergenic because it does not have natural lanolin like wool does. It is extremely soft and warm, and not prickly.

I have included photots of the Range shawl I knit using this yarn base. It is not included, only shown as an example. This yarn base was just perfect for the brioche and textured patterns used in the shawl. The end result is a blanket shawl, that will be joining me at many campfires this fall! The pattern can be purchased from Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits and is not included with the yarn.

This yarn base is not superwash, and will need to be laundered with care. Always hand wash, and dry flat.
