Knitting yarn DK; The most versatile and requested thread! This is the one that is mostly found on the market; ideal for knitting, weaving...
Product of the farm, it has the advantage of being a product much less industrial than Peru alpaca yarn. Here, no chemical is in fact used in its transformation and it is spun in a semi-artisanal mill. The colors presented on this page are natural colors, without dye; they do not tarnish during washing!
There are 22 official natural colours and about 250 alpaca colors in addition to the possible color blends in spinning process; it is therefore possible that there is a slight variation of hue between two skeins of the same color. The name of the official color displayed is the one closest to the hue of the skein.
It is sometimes available 100% alpaca, sometimes mixed with a bit of superwash merinos; mixing with this merino does not affect the hypoallergenic quality of the alpaca or its softness. It allows on the other hand to have a more regular spinning which will have by the same fact, a little less tendency to felt easily and will have a better memory. Nevertheless, the knitted fabrics must be hand washed.
the price is for a skein of 100g. Our DK thread is knitted with needles between 4 and 5mm approximately if it is single knit and 6-8mm needle If it is double yarn knit.
