Real reviews from real people

  • "This is one of the most reliable companies to trade with. All contact I have made has been a joy. It feels as if I am of interest and cared about individually."

  • "The yarn was a dream to work with, super-soft and the finished jumper has beautiful weight and drape. In fact it has spoilt me for future knitting projects and once I have used up my stash, I plan to knit exclusively in alpaca."

BUT, what's so special about alpaca?

You've probably heard it's super soft and hypoallergenic, but did you also know it is water-repellant (Yes you can go out in the rain!), stronger than mohair, finer than cashmere, smoother than silk, softer than cotton, warmer than goosedown, and more breathable than thermal knit? Our alpaca yarn blends offer increased resistance to shedding and pilling (going fuzzy or bobbly).
