Astral yarn is a heavenly blend of 30% Alpaca, 20% Wool, and 50% Tencel with incredible luster. This DK-weight alpaca yarn from the Alpaca Yarn Company is destined to become a favorite. The Alpaca/Merino wool create body and softness, while the Tencel produces a lovely drape as well as adding durability and strength. Each 3.5 ounce (100g) skein is 197 yards. The manufacturer's gauge is 5 stitches per inch with size US 7 (4.5 mm) needles. Be sure to see the patterns designed for use with this beautiful yarn.
