This limited edition From the Farm yarn is a beautiful blend of baby alpaca and cormo wool. Baby Alpaca is one of the most luxurious fabrics in the world. It is incredibly warm, light weight and strong. It has hypoallergenic properties, it contains no lanolin, which makes the fiber safe to wear if you have skin allergies. Alpaca is said to be three times warmer than sheep’s wool, the fibers have excellent insulation properties while remaining light and breathable. The cormo fiber is extremely fine, it has natural elasticity which helps a merino garment stretch yet return back to its original shape. It also has insulating properties meaning the thinnest of garments create thermal layer of warmth against the cold.
The softness of both fibers paired with the memory of the cormo wool provides an unlimited number of options! Hello, super soft sweater! It's also an amazing choice for your favorite winter accessories -- hats, gloves, scarves, cowls and shawls.
You will not be disappointed by whatever you make with this yarn!
