Superfine 400 Alpaca Braid Fine Yarn description:
Superfine 400 Alpaca Braids are a super-soft sport weight delight! This luxurious and 100% natural 3-ply alpaca provides all the warmth and drape you dream of in alpaca. You'll enjoy beautiful stitch definition and gorgeous colors, from soft heathers to vibrant jewel tones.
Each braid combines five colors for about 1,000 total yards. Fine colorwork, bold color-blocking and tonal stripes are all possible with a single braid - or just grab one for the stash knowing it won't sit for long with so many possibilities in each colorful braid.
The ample yardage also makes this a perfect item for weavers as this yarn will work beautifully in both warp and weft. Save the step of picking colors and make a simple striped twill or plain weave warp, then weave your weft in the same blocks of color for a gorgeous shawl.
Not sure what to get your favorite fiber-freak, or wool-averse yarnie? These alpaca braids make a fun and versatile gift!
