Regia – Alpaca Soft
Want a pair of socks for your cocooning sessions in the sofa, or to keep your feet warm at night? Thanks to Schachenmayr Regia’s Premium Alpaca Soft, you will be able to knit yourself the socks of your dreams!
This yarn has indeed two things that make it the perfect candidate to become your next cuddly socks. First, their weight. A bit thicker than the traditional sock yarns, the Premium Alpaca Soft is a sport weight yarn. Just what you need to have thicker socks without ending with slippers. Then, it contains alpaca fiber. It means that this yarn is fluffier, softer and warmer than wool yarn. If this is not exactly what you need to keep your feet toasty warm…
But don’t go away if you are not a fan of socks! Just like most of the “premium” yarns of the brand, this one is very versatile. It means you can make whatever project you want with it. Soft cowls, sweaters, cardigans… anything you would like to wrap yourself into!
