What Makes Joy so Joyful?

  1. Supreme Softness: Baby alpaca yarn is celebrated for its exceptional softness. It is a perfect choice for those who crave a gentle and soothing touch against their skin.
  2. Hypoallergenic: This yarn is naturally hypoallergenic and gentle, making it suitable even for those with sensitive skin or allergies.
  3. Insulating: The tiny air pockets within alpaca fiber lend natural insulating properties to the yarn. It keeps you warm in the winter and cool during the summer.
  4. Lightweight: Despite its insulating properties, baby alpaca yarn is surprisingly lightweight. This makes it comfortable to wear and allows for intricate patterns and delicate lacework.
  5. Durable: While it may feel delicate to the touch, baby alpaca yarn is surprisingly durable. When cared for properly, items made from this yarn can last for years.
  6. Moisture-Wicking: Alpaca fibres naturally wick moisture away from your body, keeping you dry and comfortable. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture before feeling damp.
  7. Silky Sheen: Baby alpaca yarn often has a subtle sheen, giving finished pieces a touch of elegance.
  8. Versatile: This yarn works well for a wide range of projects, from delicate lace shawls to cozy winter sweaters. Its drape and softness add an air of luxury to any creation.
  9. Ethical and Sustainable: Alpacas are shorn annually, and their fleece is a renewable resource. Most alpaca yarn is sourced from small farms or cooperatives, contributing to sustainable, ethical practices.
  10. Naturally Odour-Resistant: Baby alpaca yarn naturally resists odours, allowing for longer wear between washes.
