Alpaka Reina

Araucania Yarns - Alpaka Reina

Extra-Fine King Alpaca, which is the term used for 19-micron (and finer) Royal Alpaca.  That is one of the finest grades of Alpaca fiber in the world.

Note on gauge.  We sampled this yarn on a US 8 needle with 4.5sts per inch.  Perfect for drapey cowls, scarves and shawls.  We would probably use a US 7 for hats, and for a pullover maybe even a 6 to get firm body for a long wearing garment.
