A&P Alpaca & Silk 4 Ply


Soft and silky alpaca made even more silky with the addition of, well, silk.  Alpaca is lighter and softer than wool and has a beautiful drape but lacks its elasticity.  The silk adds strength and a gentle sheen to the yarn which makes the most beautiful shawls and scarves and is brilliant for lace work.

If you like a colour but there’s not enough in stock please contact us here for dye to order.

Ainsworth & Prin yarn is hand dyed in small batches.  We try to achieve consistent colours but each skein is unique so when using more than one skein of a colour in a project we really recommend alternating skeins every couple of rows.
