The Baby Alpaca & Silk range of luxury yarns utilise the very best British alpaca fleeces, primarily from the first shearing, and selected by hand for ultimate softness. The yarns are 80% British baby grade alpaca blended with 20% Tussah silk and manufactured in the UK. The alpaca in our yarns is sourced from our own alpacas and those from alpaca farms in the UK and Ireland.
This is a proven blend that offers increased resistance to shedding and pilling in this delicate yarn and gives improved loft and substance whilst still retaining its wonderful softness.
A sumptuous soft handling yarn with great brightness and strength. The ultimate alpaca yarn.

A friend of mine has knitted a baby shawl for me in this yarn and it is sooooooo soft, bouncy and luscious and will be an heirloom in years to come. I can see the yarn working well as a shawl or scarf and particularly for those allergic to wool. Highly recommended.
