This is just about the softest alpaca yarn I’ve worked with. The only one that’s come close is the Austermann Alpaca Silk which is aran / worsted weight.
Classed as sport weight to double knit, knits to all sport or dk patterns, change your needle size until you get the right tension for your item.
Knitting and crochet designer Jacqui Harding had this to say about Lanas Stop Alpaca:
“The Lanas Stop Alpaca is probably the nicest alpaca yarn I have ever used – EVER! Softer than most and not sheddy. Delicious. I will be buying some from you – when I have time to knit for me! Everybody should try it :)”
The yarn gives a great stitch definition when knitting and is buttery soft both in the hand and the finished garment. It’s a dream.
