Kremke Soul Wool – Baby Silk Fluffy
You can’t resist a little ball of fluffy yarn, but, to your greatest despair, your skin can’t tolerate mohair? Kremke Soul Wool offers you a new alternative to satisfy your craving with their Baby Silk Fluffy!
Indeed, this yarn is very aptly named! Soft, fuzzy, cosy… in a word (or three) a real cuddle. Yet, what else could it be when you know that baby alpaca is the main fiber in this blend? This soft cloud is delicately spun around a silk core, to give an airy and light yarn. Less “hairy” than a mohair and silk blend, baby alpaca takes a downy aspect once knitted. One of the yarns you want to fill a bathtub with before taking a plunge in it!
And with its range of colours, featuring both neutral and modern shades, you will easily find the one you need to match your newest project with your existing wardrobe. Plus thanks to its generous meterage, you won’t need a lot of balls to knit a big project. 200 meters for 50 grams is usually something you find for fingerin yarns. Yet this one can be knitted with 5 mm needles!
What you need to know about this yarn:
- Weight: Worsted
- Composition: 80% baby alpaca, 20% soie
- 200 meters / 50 grams per ball
- Available in 10 shades
- Needles: 5 mm

Kremke Soul Wool’s Baby Silk Fluffy thus has everything you could dream of to replace mohair blends in your heart… and on your skin! Actually, it will be perfect to knit one of those big cuddly sweater created by nordic designers, simple and comfortable, that you won’t be able to take off. But if, finally, you’d rather wear mohair, you have to look in Sandnes Garn’s range: their Silk Mohair yarn looks a lot like this one!
Not sure? The Ravelry page of this yarn is still quite new and doesn’t have a lot of projects, but you can still find how it looks once knitted and some inspiration… before sharing your own projects there too!
*Contrary to what you can think, baby alpaca does not come from baby alpacas. But it is used to talk about a category of very fine fiber. And the finer the fiber is, the softer!
