In our blog post about Alpaca Yarns, we discussed many reasons why Alpaca is an excellent natural fabric to work with. Here are the 8 Best Natural Alpaca Projects to help you get started!
Natural Alpaca Yarn
Natural Alpaca Yarn consists of 77% acrylic, 20% alpaca, 3% viscose fibers. This gorgeous blend is the perfect amount of natural and synthetic fibers to get the best of both worlds. Alpaca Yarn is incredibly soft yet very sturdy because of the alpaca fibers. Natural fibers have elasticity or a natural stretchiness to the yarn that adds a special something to your projects. This yarn is wonderful for garments and afghans; you’ll even love using it to make winter accessories. Alpaca Yarn is available in 10 solid or coordinating self-striping colors. We recommend that items made with Alpaca Yarn are Handwashed, reshaped then laid flat to dry. Natural Alpaca Yarn is a wonderful way to work with alpaca yarn without going over budget
