Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky

Misti Alpaca's popluar chunky weight yarn is now available in a hand paint version. This lightly twisted two-ply chunky alpaca is as soft as any product we’ve had the pleasure to work with; It's just yummy. It knits up quickly and is great for garments and accessories. Made in Peru.

    Love, love, love Misti Alpaca yarn! It is so soft that it's hard going back to working with any other yarn. The color variations are beautiful and interesting.
    'Have made several hats and cowls for my little grand daughters...Just remember to hand wash and air dry. Son-in-law shrunk a gorgeous cowl!

      Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky:

      I used this yarn to knit a scarf with a diagonal pattern using short rows. The colors are very compatible with just about anything you would wear. Even though the yarn is labeled chunky it knits up with a fairly smooth texture. The yarn is very soft, pliable and comfortable to work with

                This yarn is sooo soft and the colorways are stunning and beautiful - I have used several of the different color combinations and the results each time are like an impressionist's painting. The yarn is wonderful to knit with, so soft but with strength - just an outstanding product that WEBS' discount makes is possible to use!
