Alpaca – So Soft & So Warm…

One of my favourite materials to work in – Alpaca. Here a collage of some of my Alpaca sweaters and cardigans, all in Drops Alpaca.

Drops Alpaca comes in lots of beautiful shades and if they’re not enough, it can easily be combined with Mini Alpakka from Sandnesgarn.no, which , however, is more expensive.

I tend to buy yarn in bulk when they’re on sale which happens about twice a year when we’re talking about Drops Alpaca: November-December -25% and May -35%. So even though my Alpaca stash looks like this at the moment…
