Alpakka Lin is a soft but sturdy yarn made of brushed alpaca with a linen core yarn. The yarn is strong despite it's softness and is perfect for light garments. The linen content gives the yarn a beautiful and playful character.
Although the yarn is lightweight, the soft alpaca has a beautiful halo that gives the finished item a luxurious and warm feel.
The Alpakka Lin is made up of only natural fibers: 44% linen, 48% baby alpaca and 8% wool. This yarn combination is amazing because it emphasizes the best qualities of these fibers. The linen content guarantees any garment knit/ crocheted with this yarn will hold its shape and won't sag. The baby alpaca doesn't get stretched because it's only there for softness and warmth.
