Stylecraft Alpaca Tweed DK

Alpaca Tweed is an impressively soft yarn. Stylecraft test knitters have found it hard to believe that it contains only 20% Alpaca. The remaining 80% is Premium Acrylic and Viscose which ensure softness and excellent wash and wear qualities. It makes the most of this autumns trend for fuzzy and soft textured yarns without being too hairy. The colour palette has tasteful neutrals and rich earthy tones to suit a classy and modern colour palette.
