Alpamayo is the perfect marriage between luxurious softness and durability for daily wear. We are thrilled to add this yarn for 2021 during its worldwide debut. The pattern offerings are consistent with Jody Long's timeless, yet modern, designs. You will want to include Alpamayo as a staple in your repertoire for years to come. The yarn has a subtle sheen, the softness of happy clouds, and gives us good feels inside too with the ecological addition of organic cotton.
Alpamayo is named for one of the most conspicuous peaks in the Peruvian Andes, is an intoxicating blend of GOTS-certified Organic Peruvian Tanguis cotton and Extrafine baby alpaca. Tanguis Cotton is known to be of exceptional quality because of its soft touch, strength, excellent absorption and high dye affinity. Softer than air, Alpamayo was created for year-round knitting. Extrafine baby alpaca keeps us warm during colder months while organic Tanguis cotton keeps us cool in warmer weather. It's the ideal combination of natural fibers.
