Touch of Alpaca: Now in Bonus Bundles! + 4 Free Patterns

Touch of Alpaca, now available in bundles!

Our Touch of Alpaca yarn is a fast-favorite, claiming a spot on Ravelry’s top-five popular new yarns, and we couldn’t agree more! This yarn is special, and we hope it makes it onto your hooks and needles soon. Because it’s a blend of acrylic (90%) and alpaca (10%), it’ll have similar qualities to sheep’s wool, but will be softer, warmer, and hypoallergenic. You’ll get the best of what a natural fiber has to offer, without sacrificing durability and washability, which is great news for winter garments.

We’re rolling out special bonus bundle sizes of this crowd-pleaser, to keep your projects clicking along!

Bundled Up

For those casting on larger projects, we have great news – Touch of Alpaca is also available in a Bonus Bundle! Double the yardage, for just a few dollars more. Each bonus bundle will weigh 7oz (200g), with a yardage of 415yd (380m). If you’re planning something big, the Bonus Bundle is a no-brainer when it comes to stashing for a rainy day. Plus, you’ll have fewer ends to weave in!

By Color

The jumbo-sized skein of Touch of Alpaca is available in 12 gorgeous colors, from neutrals to more vivid LB-Color-of-the-Year tones. 12 of the same tones at as the standard-sized skein (minus Red, Blue, Goldenrod, and Wood). If you read our COTY post, and are as infatuated with January’s ‘Vanilla’ as we are, you’ll want to take a closer look at Cream.

All the colors are exceedingly modern, without straying from what’s beautiful and wearable.

In Reviews

“I’m obsessed,” Deborah writes.

“Once I discovered Alpaca there was no turning back. I like having some of it in my creations, or at least a blend. So soft, its a good feeling to know you are using a natural fiber. I would love to have a closet full of all the colors. Also, thank you for the fantastic pricing. It helps those of us on a limited budget projects in the works.”

Thanks, Deborah!

  • I purchased the Easy Knit Blanket Sweater. I was enjoying knitting and completing the sweater blanket and realized that I only received 6 skeins of yarn instead of 8, therefore, the sweater is too small to enjoy. Please respond with information in how the company can correct this mistake.
    THank you. Mary

    • Hi, Mary – I’m so sorry to hear that! Based on where you purchased, you’ll want to contact that customer service. For example, if you purchased on the website, you’ll want to give them a call & let them know! Let us know if there’s anything else we can do!

  • What is the pattern shown in the picture along with the skeins?
