Alpaca yarn | bumps
Each bump is unique. It takes an entire animals shearing to make one bump, so these are really unique. Sometimes the mill makes more than one bump, blending different animals fiber, so we can get 2 - 3 that match pretty well. If you need matched bumps, please let us know in the comments when you check out so that we can do a visual check and try and get you the perfect combination! You may also SPECIAL ORDER ALPACA BUMPS.
We at fab are always seeking out super bulky, funky and unusual bulky yarns. This fits the bill, exactly. A blend of alpaca, merino wool with a nylon core, this super bulky yarn is TRULY Uber-bulky. At 1 stitch per inch, it's one of the bulkiest we've found, and the ONLY super bulky alpaca. With gentle bumps and ridges, it has beautiful texture, and is not so heavy as to be unwearable when knitted. Makes for great rugs, and throws - almost 125 yards per bump, and think of what you can do with that at 1 stitch per inch!-
