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.

    This yarn is pure heaven to work with and to wear. I made an infinity scarf in a figure 8 stitch which compliments the hand painted syle of this yarn perfectly. I get so many compliments, it's unbelievable!

    Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky:

    I have made a spiral patterned snood from this beautiful yarn. It is the softest yarn I have found. The snood is light as air but oh so warm. The change of colors allows the diagonal pattern to stand out. I have so many orders from my friends I'll be making this for the next 5 years!

      Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky:

      The Colors are so vivid and the yarn is so soft. The yarn does tend to shed while you work with it (and I have not had it very long so I do not know if it will continue to shed) Love the colors on this. The online pictures do not do this justice.

        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.

          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
