Classic Elite Yarns Inca Alpaca has some wonderful qualities, not least the fact that it is very warm, and, we are told, it stays warm even when wet! So if you happen to be out in the rain in a sweater made of this gorgeous yarn, you'll be ok! 100% baby alpaca can be a great choice for anyone allergic to the lanolin in wool, because there is none in an alpaca fleece. Knitting up on US 7 (4.5mm) needles, this would be ideal for any DK project, and some worsted weight patterns (check your tension first!) and the color palette is so varied and rich, it would be the perfect choice for fair isle or an intarsia project.
