Galler Yarns Heather Prime Alpaca

is available in 31 delicious heathered colors with each individual tone in a single colorway being dyed first, then spun together. Alpaca yarns are hypoallergenic, free of lanolin or dander, and water and fire resistant. This is the ultimate fiber for the discriminating knitter or weaver who cares not only about the quality of the yarn, but also the social and environmental impact of the production process.

The cashmere of alpacas, Galler Prime Alpaca is like nothing you have felt before. Made from Superfine grade alpaca, this incredibly soft and touchable yarn is carefully processed and blended to create the perfect colors for your next knitting or crochet project. Originating high in the Peruvian Andes, the fiber is collected from carefully managed alpaca herds. These hardy animals live at elevations of over 13,000 feet in the Andes and their adaptation to the extreme weather conditions contributes to a lighter, denser and softer fleece, with more thermal capacity than that of their lowland cousins. The fiber is carefully processed and spun in a mill committed to improving the quality of life in their region, as well as the quality of the yarn. The care and dedication can be felt in every skein of this glorious yarn.
