About Alpaca wool
Due to unique alpaca features this yarn is one of the most valuable in the world. Alpaca wool is known to be very warm, several times warmer than the common sheep‘s wool. Alpaca fibres have microscopic air pockets which hold the warmth and ensure breathability. Alpaca is free of lanolin, and thus can be processed without the need for high temperatures or harsh chemicals in washing. Also it is called hypoallergenic. Many people who cannot wear wool, report that they can wear alpaca with no allergic reaction. In some cases this may be because there is no lanolin in alpaca garments. Alpaca fibres are smooth, silky soft and have good pill resistance. High strength and elasticity make this fibre highly durable and lasting longer. It is a natural fibre that looks and feels luxurious on the skin.
Galo Baby Alpaca DK is suitable for various knits like scarfs, hats, mittens, sweaters and other garments you are dreaming of. Particular softness makes it perfect for babies and kids knitwear. You can visit our blog to find more knitting ideas.
