Alpaca Weaving Yarn ~ Iris
$ 92.00 USD
This electric purple alpaca yarn is the color of being a teenager, first days of summer, a world wide open. It is flecked with turquoise and hot pink, and every time I look at it I see something new.
A cone of this weaving yarn is exactly what you're looking for when you're looking for alpaca: super soft, cushy, and warm. I source this yarn directly from Arequipa, Peru, where it is made in a mill that has been creating high-quality alpaca yarn for over 90 years.

This yarn is a delight to work with - it is very well behaved in winding the warp, warping the loom, and in weaving. I wove a shawl that is delightfully soft, lightweight, and warm. The vibrant color is eye-catching and gathers many compliments. I have built a stash of this yarn in several colors planning for future projects.
I have used this yarn for warping my vintage 4-shaft Schacht loom and have nothing but praise for it. I have it now in three colors and love them all. It’s very soft and very sturdy— I broken warp threads! It is a bit fuzzy and fringe may need to be trimmed with small, sharp scissors, but it’s definitely worth the effort. I’ll happily purchase more.
Beautiful color, used for both warp and weft...2 cones made 3 perfect scarves! So soft and drapes well!
Love the colours , so soft. Always my first place to shop.
This yarn is the softest, lightest yet strongest alpaca that I have ever woven with. A true pleasure!
