Please note: In our experience, Kokon Alpaca is very susceptible to pilling. This is a natural characteristic of soft, loosely twined yarn. But it does make Kokon Alpaca a little less suitable for knitting sweaters. 

How many skeins do I need?

Please note that Kokon is hand dyed on a small scale. Always make sure that you have enough yarn for your project. Even within the same dyelot, colours may vary.

  • Scarf or cowl: 2-3 skeins.
  • Shawl: 3-5 skeins.
  • Women's jumper or cardigan size 40: 7-8 skeins.

Please note that some patterns, like cables, require more yarn than a standard stockinette or garter stitch. Also, crochet usually requires approx. 30% more yarn than knitting.

About Kokon Baby Alpaca

Alpaca is considered a luxury fiber and can be compared with other fine fibers like Cashmere and Pashmina. Alpaca is smooth, velvety, very light weight, soft and durable. 100% pure Alpaca wool is absolutely thermal due to it’s hollow fiber and microscopic pockets. This allows for warmth in winter and breathability in summer. Alpaca fiber is also dust and water repellant.

Alpaca is one of the most environmentally friendly fibers to produce. Alpaca’s are raised in the Andean highlands at an altitude where there is no usage or presence of insecticides or herbicides. The highlands provide a low-protein diet based on natural grasses that are essential for quality Alpaca fleece. The foot anatomy of an Alpaca is such that an Alpaca disrupts far less soil than other grazers and therefore creates less ground erosion.

There is no Superwash treatment on Alpaca fiber. For care instructions hand washing is recommended to avoid shrinkage.
