Highland Alpaca Chunky | Estelle
- HOW IT'S MADE
- PROJECT IDEAS
Squishy, pillowy, and oh-so-soft, Estelle's Highland Alpaca Chunky is a beautiful alpaca-wool blend that's perfect for chunkier projects that require softness. This yarn has gorgeous drape, but because of the wool content, it also holds its structure well too.
Like most wools, Highland wool has many incredible qualities such as being temperature regulating, moisture and sweat wicking, water and wind resistant, and durable. But because of the alpaca fiber, this yarn also has a softness and loftiness that adds a more luxurious feel to your work.
