Grey puffy willows,
Like fairy pillows,
So soft for fairy’s head...
Cherry petals sweet for a cool clean sheet,
Green moss for a fairy’s bed... 

This children’s song very much describes the character of this beautiful yarn. Only selected baby alpaca fleeces from the Peruvian Andes are used for this incredibly soft and light Alpaca yarn. Spun in Peru, Alpaca Light still keeps with the general slouchy and drapey character of any Alpaca yarn. It is best suited for flowing and body skimming pieces, ideally knitted seamlessly. Unlike its bigger siblings, Alpaca Light is perfect for delicate knits, baby clothes or undergarments.
