Peruvian Tweed 600 Yards 100% Superfine Alpaca Color 119- Chocolate & Black

 Peruvian Tweed 600 Yards 100% Superfine Alpaca Color 119- Chocolate & Black
These wonderful alpaca yarns are the cashmere of alpacas. Of Superfine grade, incredibly soft and touchable, Peruvian Tweed is like nothing you have knit with before. Each colorway consists of two strands of softly spun pure alpaca yarn bound with a third strand of a tightly spun alpaca yarn. All-natural and undyed, carefully processed and blended, this yarn originates high in the Peruvian Andes where fiber is collected from carefully managed alpaca herds. These hardy animals live at elevations of over 13,000 feet in the Andes and their adaptation to the extreme weather conditions contributes to a lighter, denser and softer fleece, with more thermal capacity than that of their lowland cousins. The fiber is carefully processed and spun in a mill committed to improving the quality of life in their region, as well as the quality of the yarn. The results can be felt in every skein.

Alpaca yarns are hypo-allergenic, naturally free of lanolin and dander, and are water and fire resistant. These top-grade, superfine alpaca yarns provide the ultimate fiber for the discriminating knitter or weaver who cares not only about the quality of the yarn, but also the social and environmental impacts of the production process.



Each skein is knot free!
