Misti Alpaca Chunky

This lightly twisted two-ply chunky alpaca is as soft as any product we’ve had the pleasure to work with. It is just yummy. It knits up quickly and is great for garments and accessories.  Made in Peru.

Comments about Misti Alpaca Chunky:

I have made 5 snoods with the chunky alpaca. While knitting I feel as though I have a kitten in my hand. It is so soft and luxurious. The colors are beautifully dyed. Those who have received them as gifts have said it has become their favorite scarf. The only drawback is that it sheds slightly. I plan on making more things with this yarn.

    Comments about Misti Alpaca Chunky:

    I bought this yarn to make a snood for a friend with a sensitivity to sheep wool both with the scratchy factor as well as the lanolin. The llama's wool worked out perfectly because it is super soft, with no scratchiness and no lanolin because llama's don't produce any oil in their wool. The yarn knits up very quickly and fairly tightly, which is good because I used it to make a warm, outside garment. The finished product was beautiful and I was very satisfied with it. I'm very excited to finish my next snood for myself so that I can also have the warmth it provides.

    Service and delivery comments:

    My yarn arrived on time and in an appropriate package that caused no damage to the yarn. I was very satisfied with the promptness and condition it arrived in.

      Comments about Misti Alpaca Chunky:

      I have knitted the Bella's Mittens several times with this yarn, they come out beautiful, soft and warm.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery prompt but the packaging was awful. This yarn is lofty and my 2 skeins were crammed into a bag so tightly that the skeins were in the fold at the top of the plastic envelope and I pulled and held the top of the envelope, when I cut it also cut into the skein. The one skein was quickly replaced but when I called the customer service rep was short with me and didn't seem to care that the packaging was not done well.

          Comments about Misti Alpaca Chunky:

          This yarn is very soft and lightweight. I have knitted up three scarves with this yarn. It does shed, so I have to consider the color I am wearing before I wrap it around my neck. The softness was a factor since it sits against my skin when I wear it and am very sensitive to certain fibers.
