Natural yarn for knitting.

Baby alpaca wool comes from the first shearing and is even softer than normal alpaca wool. It is very warm, warmer than sheep wool, non-itchy, strong and hypoallergenic. It is perfect for knitting baby clothes.

Because it has such good properties, the garments you knit with it will have a higher quality than even cashmere and mohair. The garments last for many years due to the strength of the fiber.

Why alpaca wool does not produce allergy? because it does not contain lanolin, so it is perfect for people with very delicate skin. It also has a low water absorption, so it does not suffer deformations.

Of course, like sheep’s wool, it is flame retardant, which means it is fire resistant.

How to care for alpaca garments?

Hand wash:

Soak in water, leave to soak and apply neutral soap. Rub gently and rinse with new water.

To remove excess water, open a towel, place the garment on top and roll up without tightening. DO NOT STRESS as you may deform the garment.

Dry in the shade (to keep the colors longer) and horizontally.

Sustainability: Beautiful yarn…

…that take care of your health… Synthetic fibers do not allow the skin to breathe and make it irritated, and many of them are petroleum-derived products that have been dyed with dyes containing heavy metals and other toxic substances. Natural fibers, however, allow ventilation of the skin while protecting from the cold and insulating the heat.

… and the environment… Alpaca, being a natural fiber, is made with more environmentally friendly techniques. It is also 100% biodegradable.

In addition, alpaca fibers from Peru, such as these, are fair trade fibers. This means that higher (fair) prices are offered to producers so that they can produce in better conditions, the situation of workers is also taken care of and their conditions are improved.

 

READ ME. Important information:

You should keep in mind that artisanal dyeing is not like industrial dyeing. Batches are small, and the intensity and distribution of colors may vary from one skein to another. If you need the skeins to be from the same dye lot and as similar as possible, please write this in the order notes to take this into account.

It is also important for you to know that colors may look different on each screen and that the mix and distribution of colors you receive may differ from the photo because no two skeins are exactly alike.

In any case, no worries! Because if when you receive the skeins they are not what you expected, we will start the return process without any problem and at no cost to you.

Washing recommendations:

When it comes to washing delicate hand-woven garments, it is important to take extra precautions to maintain their shape and quality, especially if they are woven with hand-dyed yarns.

    • Hand wash:
      1. Fill a container with warm water and neutral soap or mild detergent specific for delicate garments or wool.
      2. Immerse the garment in the water and let it soak for 10-15 minutes. Avoid rubbing or twisting the garment, as this may damage the fibers and cause deformation.
      3. Careful rinsing: Rinse the garment with clean water several times until no detergent residue remains. Be sure not to twist it while rinsing it.
    • Dry flat: Place the garment on a clean towel and gently roll the towel to remove excess water. Then, stretch the garment on a flat surface, in block form, to dry. Avoid hanging it, as this may deform it. Tends to shade, prolonged sun exposure can fade colors.
    • Proper storage: After washing and drying, store in a clean, dry place. You can spray the garment with our mothproof perfume, gently fold it and place it in a breathable cloth bag.
