Our Paca-Paints yarn is 100% superfine alpaca, DK weight, and is handpainted by The Alpaca Yarn Company in wonderful variegated shades and exciting colors. Each 100 gm skein is approximately 220 yards, giving you lots of options for projects. Use this yarn alone or combined with a coordinating solid color. It is the same DK weight as the Classic Alpaca yarn The gauge = 22 st / 4" (5.5 st/1") using US #6 (4.0mm) needles. The pictures really don't do justice to these beautiful colors.
Why alpaca? Alpaca fiber is luxuriously soft, lightweight, and warm. Unlike wool, alpaca fiber does not irritate the skin or contain lanolin.
