Silky Alpaca Lace
A beautiful blend of fibers, Silky Alpaca Lace is spun into a gossamer yarn that knits into amazing lightweight pieces. The alpaca provides warmth and a soft halo, the silk adds a subtle sheen to the knitted stitches. Worked with larger needles, Silky Alpaca Lace makes lovely, light-as-air shawls, garments and accessories.
