Baby alpaca fibre is taken from the neck and nape of the animal and is often from the first shearing of an alpaca, giving you the softest, most beautiful fibre the animal is likely to produce.
Our Sugar Baby Alpaca is spun from this deluxe natural fibre and is produced in very limited quantities. Soft and fine, it’s amazing for more delicate knits and gives cashmere a run for its money!
The yarn comes from populations bred in the Andean Highlands, making the wool elastic and extremely strong.

What's it Like to Knit With?

What Can I Make?
Perfect for any piece that benefits from lightness and drape. Our favourite items to knit with this are mittens, gloves, hats and sweaters. Its hypoallergenic and thermal properties also make it the best yarn for babies.
