Rowan – Alpaca Classic



Cozy sweaters wanted! Rowan’s Alpaca Classic is one of those yarns that makes you feel like filling a bath tub with it and just dive inside this soft fluffy goodness! Made of superfine alpaca fiber and cotton, it will wrap you in a 100% natural cloud of sofness. The alpaca fiber is in fact blown inside a mesh cotton tube. That way, you have a wonderfully smooth yarn, extremely light. Want a proof?  A 25g ball has the same meterage as a 50g ball of alpaca spinned in the traditional way! Talk about lightness… Rowan is a major player in the knitting yarn field, and has been for more than 40 years now. The quality of their yarn is well known, and this one is no exception. What you need to know about it:
