Alpaca Merino DK
Most people want soft, hardworking yarn in great colours, and the Alpaca Merino range from Estelle yarn delivers it! Made from a blend of 60% superfine alpaca and 40% merino wool, this yarn has a great twist, beautiful gently heathered colours, and the DK weight is ideal for projects ranging from accessories to garments.
Alpaca is a relative of the camel and is known for its non-allergenic, super soft hair. On its own, alpaca yarn can be expensive and cause garments can feel heavy and stretch - the addition of merino wool to this yarn counteracts this, resulting in the best qualities of both materials.Content: 60% superfine alpaca, 40% merino wool
