What's in the Box?

ALPACA - Naturally

Southern Alpacas Stud are supplying their range of natural alpaca yarns for the next NZ Yarn Sampler Box. This is what they tell us about their beautiful yarn:

Working with Just Alpaca we supply our alpaca for 4 ply and 8 ply yarns in natural shades – white, light fawn, medium fawn, brown, grey, and black. The samples are generous 50 gram balls. The 8 ply is 95 metres on 4 mm needles, and the 4 ply 240 metres on 3.25 mm needles. These yarns are 80% alpaca, dye-free, with 20% wool. Enjoy working with these natural fibres.
Alpaca can be used wherever you would use wool and the finished article will be lighter, softer and warmer. Once washed, it is suitable for most allergy sufferers.

For the first NZ Yarn Sampler we supplied our vibrant hand-dyed fine alpaca and merino yarn in 2 ply sample hanks. These also come in a natural ecru shade, as well as packed in a knit kit with two patterns for scarves.
We have clean raw fibre in a dozen natural shades, and washed and carded slivers of pure alpaca fibre, in natural colours. Our main shades are white, light honey fawn, warm fawn,  ginger, rich brown, chocolate brown, espresso, jet black, dark grey, dusky grey, silver grey, rose grey.
We also blend natural coloured alpaca with hand-dyed silk for luxurious blends in fabulous bright colours. This year our range is luscious and almost edible – raspberry, plum, blackberry, black spice, lavender and tangerine.

Our Alpaca Gallery showcases alpaca and their fibre, as raw or carded fibre in natural shades, beautiful colourful blends, and fleece converted to yarns, knit kits, felted apparel, and knitwear.
