Dim cold nights are already knocking on our door, which means it's time to dress as warmly as possible. The best way to do that is to pull on some nice warm socks, so the cold wouldn't bite your toes, and to wrap a warm soft alpaca scarf around your neck for extra warmth and comfort.
Alpacas are mainly farmed for their excellent wool. Alpaca wool is shiny and silky, soft and luxurious. It is believed to be 7 times warmer and 3 times more durable than lambswool. It is not prickly and does not contain lanolin, thus making it hypoallergenic.
Colour of the scarf: Bordeaux red
Composition of the scarf: 100% baby alpaca wool
An interesting fact about alpacas: Alpaca wools are stretchy due to the elasticity determined by the scales
The Alpaca fiber scales are smoother and shorter when not locked together. The outcomes are that 100% alpaca yarns tend to start stretching, unlike wool, which does not shrink into place whenever washed. The feature significantly benefits crocheting or knitting the lace while the stitches open up readily and display the pattern.
