Eco Soft and Eco Baby

We are launching two new yarns: Eco Soft and Eco Baby. Both yarns consist of Alpaca and Organic Pima Cotton from Peru.

The idea for these two new yarns arose last summer when more and more beginners visited our shop. I realized that a yarn was missing which could be knitted on large needle sizes with one strand only. And yes – we do have alpaca 3, but even this yarn can be difficult to knit from if you are at beginner’s level. I was very happy to receive the samples from our supplier in Peru and started the test knitting right away. I liked both samples very much and 5 natural colours of each yarn have been chosen.

Like the Alpaca 1 and 2 Eco-yarns, both new yarns are undyed and only available in the natural colours of the alpaca wool: dark grey, light grey, raw white, light beige and brown.

ISAGER ECO SOFT consists of 56% Alpaca and 44% Organic Pima Cotton. Meterage is 125 m in 50g and can be knitted on needle sizes 5.5 – 6 mm. Eco Soft could be the perfect replacement yarn for sweaters knitted on the same needle size and from Silk Mohair held together with a different yarn. The perferct choice for knitters, who prefer knitting with one strand only but still would like the furry look. The colours are natural, undyed colours.

ISAGER ECO BABY consists of 68% Baby Alpaca and 32% Organic Pima Cotton. Meterage is 150 m in 50 g, and it is knitted on needle size 4 – 5. This very soft yarn is well suited for babies and the smaller children. The ECO BABY  colours are natural colours and since the yarn has no chemical treatment from a dyeing process, it is also well suited for people with sensitive skins or who are allergic to wool.
