Hobbii Alpaca Silk is an extraordinarily fabulous yarn from Peru. It consists of 70% alpaca and 30% silk, a match made in heaven, if you ask us.

The silky-smooth silk adds a slightly shiny look to the yarn and combined with the long, warm alpaca-fibers, it makes the yarn extra durable. Silk Alpaca is a dream to wear and it’s perfect for warm and soft knitting for all kinds of clothing such as shawls, hats and other accessories. This lightweight yarn adds a beautiful drapable finish to any project. You can also combine the yarn with other yarns by adding e.g. a thread of Kid Silk into your work thus making your work extra lightweight.

Alpaca Silk is a fabulous luxury on your needles, so enjoy!
