*Photos depict colorway on the Sock base, this listing is for the Alpaca Boucle Base


A wonderful alternative to kidsilk/mohair yarns! We hear a lot from our customers that not everyone can tolerate mohair, some due to allergies, and others due to skin sensitivities. However, everyone loves and wants a yarn with a lofty, fluffy texture and look - we developed this beautiful new base with that in mind!

Our new Alpaca Boucle is 66% Alpaca and 34% Silk, with delicate tiny boucles, which creates a yarn that is a great substitute for any mohair lace, whether used alone or as a carry-along yarn. 

Similar to our Kidsilk Lace base, this yarn is fluffy and has a brushed look when knitted, however this one does not shed! The tiny loops hold fast the fibres and keep them attached.

Sold in approx. 100g skeins/620m. Handwash recommended. 

Colours shift beautifully from one to another. Randomly dyed to prevent striping or pooling, as much as possible, our yarns create variegated effect that looks good in plain stockinette or advanced stitch motifs.

Hand-dyed in small batches in Cork, Ireland. Dyelots may vary, Colours may vary from skein to skein, even within the same dyelot. Please note, although we take great care in photographing our yarns, colours may vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
