There’s Alpaca and then there’s Town End Alpaca. Kim, the owner of the brand is a former alpaca farmer who discovered that her true skill was in sorting and selecting alpaca fleeces.We’re pretty sure that this yarn is made from some of the finest alpaca on the market.

Alpaca fibres are hollow and less elastic than wool so gram for gram they are warmer and drapier.

We feel that alpaca reaches its full potential when it is used in combination with other fibres. This yarn is a good example containing 71% Peruvian alpaca for warmth and drape, 29% UK Shetland to make it bouncier and spring back into shape more easily. This yarn gives good stitch definition and is suitable for a range of garments and accessories such as shawls and cowls.
