New Arrival - Superba Alpaca Luxury Socks
Posted by Lea on 3rd Sep 2021
Alpaca is one of the softest yarns around so you might be as thrilled as we are to now be able to treat our feet to a luxurious pair of alpaca yarn socks. Our new Superba Alpaca Luxury Sock yarn is the perfect yarn to hand knit a new pair of socks with! This yarn is a lovely blend of virgin wool, polyamide and alpaca. It is strong due to the polyamide, soft due to the alpaca and warm due to the wool component. A winning mixture sure to keep your toes warm and toasty throughout the colder months.
This wool is an absolute pleasure to work with. It glides smoothly over your needles and has a slight fuzzy halo to it, giving it a lavish aesthetic to match its luxurious quality. Not a fan of knitting socks? Because it is durable yet soft, this yarn lends itself to more than just socks. It can be used in any 4ply pattern. It would work perfectly for a gorgeous lightweight but warm cardigan or sweater. It would also shine if used to make accessories like hats, mittens or a shawl such as the triangular lace shawl designed by Debbie Bliss.
Reduced from €14.00 to €12.99 this alpaca wool is a great bargain. You get a good amount of yarn for the price too, just one 100g ball would be plenty to whip up a standard size pair of socks. With a colour range of beautifully classic and muted neutrals, there is a colour to please everyone. More into colorwork? Why not combine a few colours! The alpaca component creates an almost melange look, adding depth and interest to each ball and any design. You cannot go wrong choosing this yarn for your next autumn/winter project. Alpaca is an especially great yarn choice if you are sensitive to scratchier wools. Whatever you decide on, we know you will love using this gorgeous alpaca luxury sock yarn.
