Paca Peds

This 65% superwash wool-20% alpaca-15% nylon sock yarn just arrived from The Alpaca Company.

They recently re-formulated this yarn and although I've stayed away from alpaca based sock yarns in the past because of stretching and durability issues, this yarn has just enough alpaca (20%) to lend a softness to the yarn while the 4 very fine singles are plied tightly for a high twist which adds durability.

For another sock yarn that is handpainted, check out Alegria.

Price per handpainted skein of 400 yds: $19.99
