Pacawool has a rustic look, straight from the farm, while still feeling so soft you can't stop touching. Made from a lofty and super soft blend of regionally sourced American Alpaca and Merino Wool, this 2 ply Aran Weight yarn knits up fast and has the memory of wool with the silky feel of alpaca. Perfect for a larger scale sweater, mittens, hats, or basically anything and everything you can think to make with it – it is sure to be quite toasty.
This yarn occasionally contains some residual vegetable matter from the farm (yes, it’s that fresh) that are easy to pick out while knitting or weaving.
