Galler Prime Alpaca Heather
It may look and feel like a luxury yarn, but Prime Alpaca Heather just might become your new staple yarn. This smooth sport- to DK-weight yarn is just right for all types of lightweight but warm sweaters and accessories. Woven, knitted, or crocheted, it will drape elegantly for casual sweaters, shawls, or blankets. Work it a bit more firmly to give structure to hats, mittens, or tailored sweaters. The generous 8 ounce hanks mean that most sweaters will just require two or three skeins, and a blanket can be woven with just three or four!
Pure alpaca is delightfully soft, and wearable by people who are allergic to the lanolin in sheep's wool. All of the colors are dyed on a heathered yarn base, for beautifully rich depth of color. See the natural, undyed shades of this yarn available from Henry's Attic.
