40% Alpaca 40% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon 2 oz., 225yd.
Made with the same alpaca as our Alpaca Blend lines, Superwash Merino, and some nylon thrown in for good measure, this yarn is a wonderfully sturdy and deliciously soft sock yarn. Don't let that pidgeon-hole you into just socks though, our Garfield Road Hat by Simone VanIderstine is made with this yarn! While there is superwash wool in this sock, we do recommend hand washing finished items to avoid felting and shrinkage.
Please Note: We don't keep track of dye lots or dye formulas. Every batch is unique and we invent colour blends as we go. If you like a particular colour, don't hesitate, because once it's gone, it may be gone for good!
