We’ve taken the incredibly soft baby alpaca from our Baby Alpaca DK and blended it with a superfine merino. The 12 plies give this cabled aran-weight yarn enough elasticity for squishy textured stitches and aran work, and the drape of alpaca means even plain stockinette will look like a work of art.
