DROPS - Alpaca

The South American alpacas are not keeping warm for no reason. Their soft, thick and slightly curly fur makes them a perfect fit in a landscape characterised by extremes, both when it comes to wind, sun and rain. These important qualities have made the wool of the alpaca famous worldwide and very sought after.

With a knitted scarf in alpaca yarn, you don't need to worry about strong winds, ventilation or rainy days. So, if you want a new knitting project, alpaca is a great choice that is comfortable most of the year and in any weather. Besides being practical, the wool from the alpaca is also known to be extremely soft and very flexible.

Characteristics of the alpaca yarn

It makes the wool suitable for, for example, cardigans and other types of sweaters. It is also suitable for people with particularly sensitive skin who need a scarf that is virtually itch-free — but it also gives just a little extra touch of luxury that gives both warmth and comfort to anyone who appreciates good quality knitted crafts.

Alpaca is sold in the natural colours of these animals. Just on their own, these colours give a much larger colour palette than you might think. The yarn can be purchased in everything from light sand colours to all black. In addition, you can get alpaca in the shades all white or light grey. 

If you need even more colour, you can also choose to buy dyed yarn. In that case, everything is possible — from phone box red to sunny yellow. 

The different colours and types can also be mixed and create beautiful patterns in both strong and natural colours that leads the thoughts to the alpaca's home in South America.

Alternative Challenges

What if all your previous knitting projects have ended up in tons of scarves? Or if there are simply no more people in your circle who are currently in need of sweaters and socks? In this case, the alpaca can also be used for more alternative projects. Because of its softness, it's ideal for making things like hats and gloves that shape themselves after its owner once it has been used a couple of times.

It can also be used as a cover for various pillows at home and in the cottage. With its softness and robustness, it is great to use as new upholstery for the sofa cushions.

If you want to use the yarn for a more personal gift, like knitting a teddy bear for the new little one in the family, then alpaca is also a good option. The yarn is so soft that the little one can use the teddy bear as a small cushion for their midday nap.
