Alpaca Elegance has been one of Kate’s favorites for almost two decades, so when considering adding select yarns to our store, it was the first yarn to come to mind. Made in Vermont at Green Mountain Spinnery, Alpaca Elegance yarn showcases the drape and resilience of New England Alpaca, the elasticity of fine wool, and the softness of both. The undyed shades (Cream, Chai, Cappuccino, Cocoa, Earl Grey and Dark Roast) are all GREENSPUN.
