What’s softer than a bunny wrapped in candy floss? Alpachino Merino brings together two of the silkiest fibres out there, in a chunky, gently twisted yarn that is soft and squishy. Inspired by the rainbow landscapes of Peru, this 100% natural beauty is sustainably sourced, and has a super wearable, easy-to-knit weight which makes it perfect for year-round stitching. Did we mention it is incredibly soft? It’s great for anything from staple sweaters and cardigans to bandanas and beanies, and being so easy to work with, it is perfect for beginners.
