Hobbii Soft Alpaca is an exquisite yarn of an exclusive grade. It’s spun from 100% pure alpaca and has all the best qualities of the superb alpaca fibers.

The alpaca is known all around the world for its soft, warm, and slightly curly fur. The animals’ furs have adapted to the extreme, constantly changing weather conditions in South America with both sun, heat, wind, and bitter cold. Warm when it’s cold and cool and airy when the sun is scorching. That’s what makes these fibers perfect all year round.

The alpaca fibers are hollow, actually like super thin tubes full of air, which grants them excellent insulating properties that’s up to eight times warmer than wool from sheep. That’s why you can keep warm with a very thin and light knit. When the fine, natural fibers are spun into our Soft Alpaca, the result is a lovely yarn quality that’s very durable and amazingly soft against your skin.

Soft Alpaca has a natural weight that makes the fabric drape beautifully whether it’s knit or crocheted. For the same reason it’s great for shawls, fabulous sweaters, and super soft accessories of all kinds. Alpaca does not contain lanolin, so if you’re, e.g., allergic to sheep’s wool, alpaca is a nice, natural alternative.

Colors no. 2 and 42 are completely natural shades of alpaca that haven’t been dyed.
