Du Store Alpakka Fin

Du Store Alpakka Fin is a lovely, soft, and glossy yarn suitable for baby clothes, nice tops, and sweaters, but also for soft accessories like scarves, wrist warmers and caps.

Fin has the same knitting tension as Tynn Alpakka and contains 50% silk and 50% baby alpaca, which makes the yarn extra soft and glossy.

Alpaca - a natural luxury.

Alpaca is one of the world's most exclusive fibre and was once only used by the Inca kings in Peru. If you'd done an important deed to the country, you could be the lucky one to receive some alpaca clothes as a gift – otherwise, this yarn was only for the select few.

Alpaca animals

The alpaca hair comes from the alpaca that lives high up in the Andes mountains in South America and is one of four animals in the South American camel family.

The animals are relatively rare, which is why the price of the raw material can be high.

Three times as warm as regular wool

Alpaca has many unbeatable abilities that are different from regular wool.

Alpaca is about three times as warm as regular wool.

Alpaca also feels warm when it's cold, and cool when it's warm.

Healing properties

It has «healing properties», which means that rheumatic patients and others with problematic joints are very happy with alpaca.

Alpaca is also not itchy on most people. Alpaca does not contain lanoline – which is great if you're allergic!

How the alpaca wool is treated

Alpaca has a lovely glow and contains a lot of sulphur.

It's therefore wise to hang the alpaca clothes out to be aired out since it will clean itself.

If you need to wash the clothes, use Milo, Woolite or a good hair shampoo, wash by hand with a lot of lukewarm water.

Let the clothes dry flat in its proper shape, preferably on a towel.

This way the garment will keep looking great for many years.
