We love the versatility of this beautifully soft laceweight yarn made with 100% alpaca. Hold it with other yarns to add a luxurious touch or knit it singly for a delicate drape on scarves, shawls and vests.
Larger needles produce a lightweight airy fabric that shows off the delicate single strands, while smaller needles create a gently cosy fabric with subtle texture.
Alpaca 1 is available in a lovely range of colours to suit your project. 'Eco' in the colourway denotes 100% undyed fibres.Technical Information

Fabulous yarn. Used double instead of Shetland 2 ply for a Sasha Kagan vest top. Love it!
I use isager alpaca 1 with other fine wools like isager tweed or rowan mohair it gives the wool more strength i think and also alpaga wool is great wool, nice to knit with an amazing look.
