Isager – Alpaca 2
You are looking for the perfect yarn to knit your next shawl, or to cast on soft baby clothes? Why not give Isager’s Alpaca 2 a try?
Heavier than the Alpaca 1, it also has a different composition. Indeed, even though the Alpaca 2 is also made of natural fibers, it blends alpaca and merino in equal parts. So that you can benefit from the qualities of both at the same time!
And how one is supposed to resist? By combining the warmth of merino wool with the thermo-regulating properties of the alpaca fiber, you have a perfect blend to create winter pieces of an incredible lightness. Plus, thanks to the smoothness of the second one, which tones down the firmness of the other, it makes a fabric with a beautiful drape. And its lightness and softness are just ideal to knit baby clothes!
You can knit this yarn on its own, using one or several strands of it, or with other yarns, such as the Alpaca 1 or the Silk Mohair of the brand. Isager’s colour palette is used for all of their yarns, so that you can find the perfect complement to create an even or subtly heathered colour. But you can also choose boldly contrasting shades to obtain marled colours.
