ALPACA YARNS FROM PERU

ISAGER ALPACA 1
Alpaca-1
100 % alpaca yarn from Peru
Yarn meterage: 800 meters in 100 g

ISAGER ALPACA 1 is an ultra thin, two ply yarn made from 100% Alpaca. We use this yarn both individually, especially for scarves, but mainly we knit this yarn together with a strand of one of our other qualities. Any yarn will ‘benefit’ from being knitted together with Alpaca 1. The colour range offers many interesting effects. One strand of Alpaca 1 can make an interesting new shade when combined with another colour. One strand of Alpaca 1 can also add unity and bind colours together in a work where many colours are used.

Alpaca 1 is used primarily in combination with one of our other yarns.
Here are some suggestions:

Alpaca 1 and Spinni held together are knitted on 3 – 4 mm needles
Alpaca 1 and Highland or Tvinni held together are knitted on 3.5 – 4.5 mm needles
Alpaca 1 and Isager Tweed held together are knitted on 4 – 5 mm needles

ISAGER ALPACA 2
Alpaca-1
50% wool and 50% alpaca from Peru
Yarn meterage: 500 meter in 100 g

ISAGER ALPACA 2 is a two ply yarn which consists of 50% wool and 50% Alpaca. This yarn’s main feature is its softness which makes it very suited for baby garments. Used individually this yarn is also beautiful for an adult cardigan, but one should take into consideration that due to its softness this yarn is best suited for models not exposed to too much wear and tear. A soft yarn will never be as hard wearing as a yarn spun from a firmer wool which may also have been spun tighter. On the other hand this yarn is very well suited for scarves and knitted together with our other yarns:

Alpaca 2 and Spinni held together are knitted on 3.5 – 4.5 mm needles
Alpaca 2 and Highland or Tvinni held together are knitted on 3.5 – 5 mm needles
Alpaca 2 and Isager Tweed held together are knitted on 4 – 5.5 mm needles
Alpaca 2 and Jensen Yarn held together are knitted on 5 – 6.5 mm needles
Alpaca 2 and Aran Tweed held together are knitted on 5.5 – 6.5 mm needles
