Isager – Alpaca 1



If you are looking for a yarn that is both warm and light, Isager’s Alpaca 1, a natural featherweight lace yarn, is a good contender!

This Danish brand, created more than 40 years ago, is known all over the world for its high quality yarn. And this one is no exception!

100% pure alpaca, this ultra-light fine yarn will keep you warm and toasty. Indeed, alpaca fiber is well-known for its thermo-regulating properties: just like silk, more than warming you, it will prevent your body from losing its own warmth. Plus, alpacas do not secrete lanolin, so people who are allergic to sheep wool may be able to wear alpaca fiber.

Thanks to the finesse of the Alpaca 1 yarn, you will be able to knit it on its own, to create a fluid and airyscarf or shawl. But you will also be able to combine it with other yarns. For example, with a mohair and silk one, to create volume and give it this cuddly feeling, so trendy ! Or you can double or triple it, and play on the colours to create a delicate fading effect.

Actually, speaking about colours, Isager’s beautiful palette offers basic and complementary shades, that can blend seamlessly with your existing wardrobe. All their yarns are available in this same palette, so that you can combine them easily.

What you need to know about this yarn:

  • Weight: lace
  • Composition: 100% alpaca
  • 400 meters / 50 grams per ball
  • Available in 24 shades
  • Needles: 2.5 to 3.5 mm depending on the effect you want to achieve

Isager’s Alpaca 1 is one of those versatile yarn. With its thermo-regulating and hypoallergenic qualities, this luxurious fiber can be used for any type of projects. And combining it with another yarn, for example the Alpaca 2 or the Silk Mohair of the brand, will give you even more opportunities to knit with it! The harder part will be to choose your colours: will you prefer more or less contrast ?

And if you are struck with the “empty needles syndrome”, several thousands of projects are linked to the Ravelry page of this yarn 😉
