Quito is the yarn you want, when thinking of frosty Autumn walks or a stroll in the snow.

Alpaca is one of the warmest fibre you can choose. Due to its slouchy and drapey effect it is best suited for flowing and body skimming pieces, ideally knitted seamlessly. Alpaca Quito is a single yarn, not plied, and, once knitted, allows for many air pockets to store that extra bit of warmth when needed.

The yarn is silky and soft, slips easily off the needles and allows for a quick knit – when knitting with Alpaca yarn it is advisable to go up by 0.25mm – 0.5mm a needle size to allow the amazing drape to flow and keep its buoyancy.

---------------------------------------

All our Alpaca yarns come from the Peruvian Andes

The entire production ~ from Alpaca farmer to the spun yarn ~ is done within Peru, supporting local employment and a low carbon footprint.
