This quadruple-twisted alpaca sock wool is characterized by popular color combinations and a robust yet comfortable fiber combination.
It is ideal for knitting and crocheting socks, stockings or slippers or accessories such as leg warmers, which should be particularly resistant and yet comfortable, warm and breathable.

Superwash is a chemical treatment to remove the fiber flakes and then coat them with a polymer, which prevents the wool from felting and shrinking.
Be inspired by our sock wool made from alpaca and sheep's wool: wearing comfort, optical properties and technical advantages such as moisture regulation speak for themselves.
Alpaca is a smart fiber. As a hollow fiber, it has excellent thermal insulation properties. Thanks to its unique temperature balance, it is comfortable to wear in both winter and summer. It does not scratch or crease and is particularly suitable for sensitive and delicate skin. Sheep's wool makes this yarn particularly robust, especially when it comes to knitting socks.

Care Instructions: We recommend hand washing or dry cleaning. When washing in the machine, only wash on the wool cycle at 30 degrees Celsius and do not spin the machine. Then do not wring out the item and let it dry lying down. So you can enjoy your manual work for a long time.
