Du Store Alpakka
Do you want to knit something that will keep you extra warm? Or something that can last for many years, because it doesn't need washing? Then you should choose yarn from Du Store Alpakka. The big Norwegian company is a specialist in hand-knitted yarn made of alpaca fibres.
An alpaca is a rare camel-like animal that lives high up in the Andean Mountains in South America. The hair of the alpaca is one of the world's most exclusive fibres, which, mixed with others, makes the wool three times warmer than ordinary wool.
Clothing made of these fibres was quite popular among the Inca kings of Peru. Some say that alpaca clothing was only for the select few or awarded to those who had done something extraordinary for the country. Du Store Alpakka, therefore, supplies a wide selection of yarn in incredibly high quality.
High quality and wide colour range
At LindeHobby, you will find this luxury alpaca yarn from Du Store Alpakka in many different qualities and colours. As you can see in the selection below, for example, you can pick between 100% alpaca, baby alpaca and silk and Suri-alpaca. All of these kinds are available in a ton of different colours. You can also choose a yarn with glitter in it, the so-called Du Store Alpakka Bling Effect yarn. This way, you can put a little more bling in your life by using the yarn as an edge detail. Du Store Alpakka supplies both yarns of pure alpaca and also mixed yarn in a variety of colours, so there is something for every project and every taste.
Get clothes that last for many years
Clothes made of alpaca don't need washing, this is thanks to the fact that the yarn contains a lot of sulphur. That means it can clean itself when you hang it to be aired out. The clothes will not be worn down in the washing machine and can therefore last for many years. Gout patients and others with bad joints also benefit from alpaca, which also doesn't contain wool fat, or lanolin, to which some people are allergic.
Clicking on the various types of yarn, you will get more information about the different qualities and which knitting needles are beneficial to use. You can also see the exact colour range and find great inspiration on how to use the different types and how the different qualities can be combined. One thing is for sure: Alpaca yarn produced by Du Store Alpakka is one of the softest materials you can get!
