LIVE 🔴 Sewing with Difficult, Tricky, Lightweight Fabric | Craftsy Unlimited | SEWING REPORT
This hip-length pullover is really different from any alpaca sweater you own. The pure baby alpaca fiber is spun into an airy bulk yarn, and then brushed until it is as soft as cashmere. The chunky Purl stitch and soft turtleneck make this super cozy, but still light enough to wear indoors. Feels so good you won't want to take it off. Relaxed fit. Light to medium weight. Made in Peru.
Alpaca – The Royal Fiber of the Incas
Alpaca fiber comes from the alpaca, an animal like a llama that lives at high altitudes in Bolivia and Peru. Its lustrous, silky feel sets it apart from other fibers, and during the Inca Empire (1200 AD – 1532 AD), only the royal family could use clothing made of Alpaca. Baby alpaca is an even finer, softer grade of alpaca fiber.
Why buy Alpaca?
Alpaca is a rare fiber with limited production. It is warmer, softer and far more durable than wool. Due to its long fiber length, alpaca will never pill. Your Alpaca item is an investment that will still look beautiful many years after its purchase.
Alpaca is a Socially Responsible Fiber
Alpaca is an ecologically sustainable "green" fiber. Alpacas graze freely as they have for millenia. The husbandry of alpaca sustains rural families in the highlands of Peru, enabling them to stay in their traditional homes.
How to care for your Alpaca clothing:
Alpaca is not delicate. Care for exactly like wool.
Hand-wash in cold water or dry-clean.
Lay flat to dry.
Store neatly folded – do not hang.
Store in a moth-free environment.
With this care, an Alpaca item will stand up to years of everyday usage with few signs of wear.
