I love knitting with Alpaca Yarn……
“The Fleece of the Gods”
That is what this beautiful animal, the alpaca, is known for. They are indigenous to the mountains of South America where they play and graze way up high close to the sky…..and God. And boy do they play. They are communal animals, always looking out for each other, appropriately called “The Dolphins of the Land”
The high quality of this wool, in some cases softer than cashmere, is hypo-allergenic and gently gently caresses your skin. The following Cuffs, Bandanas and Lace Scarves are knit with baby Suri Alpaca, the very first shearing of this “ringlet” Alpaca, one of the two breeds, the other one being Huacaya.
