Baby Alpaca Yarn Review

Baby Alpaca Yarn Review.

First a bit of humor!


I am so excited! My dear friend Norri asked if I would design a hat and scarf for her to wear to the East Coast this Winter; we are both California girls. As I am highly allergic to lanolin and therefore have to wear cotton gloves and a dust mask when working with any merino wool, I suggested baby alpaca as my wool of choice to make her garments. I sent her over to WEBS in search of her colors, explaining they didn’t necessarily have to be the same brand, as long as they were similar in gauge. She found two stunning yarns. Cascade Yarns “Pure Alpaca” colorway Christmas and Juniper Moon Farm “Herriot” colorway Black River Stone; both 100% baby alpaca made in Peru. And… Yes, there are TEN skeins in the basket! Unfortunately, the colorway Christmas has been discontinued; however, Cascade Yarns has new colors! But I did find some Christmas colorway here at Alpaca Direct on clearance and available at the time of this post. Both yarns are extremely soft and are working up into stunning garments, very yummy and beautiful. I would highly recommend both yarns to everyone!


Stay tuned to see exactly what I design with this wonderful yarn! Don’t forget to subscribe to this blog, so you don’t miss the post! 🙂 Visit my Ravelry shop to see all of my free and paid patterns and please add them to your queues and faves to help this designer with the ranking of the listing.

About thehookedhaberdasher

I was blessed with two dear Grandmothers who were wonderfully gifted and loved all the arts of handcrafting. At their knee, a wee little blonde girl learned the fine art of crochet under their wise and talented tutelage. Now that little girl has grown up and enjoys a lifestyle that affords me the time to put hooks, yummy yarns and fibers back into my hands, returning to the joy and fun of the art of handcrafted crochet. I am awed by the talent and creative patterns of modern new designers, but still enjoy the beauty of vintage patterns as well. My mind and hands are never idle, designing and handcrafting stylishly beautiful, practical, cozy, comfy, sweet and cute wearables and loveables for old and young alike. As a very detail oriented artist, I design and crochet with love, embracing the virtues bequested to me by those two beautiful Grandmothers.
