Du Store Alpakka Pus

Pus is a furry, super soft, light and wonderful alpaca yarn with a cable spun core.

The surface is finely brushed, and the yarn is perfect for light clothing.

Pus is durable and comes in clear, clean colours in addition to beautiful natural and pastel colours.

TIP: The yarn is perfect for scarves and other accessories. But because it is so light and airy, it also fits well into larger clothing projects.

Each time you buy yarn from Du Store Alpakka, you’re supporting the Mirasol school in Peru.


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.
