Sandnes Garn – Alpakka Ull


Alpakka Ull is a light and warm blend of 65% alpaca and 35% wool, perfect for all your cosy winter knits. The high alpaca content makes of this super soft yarn a great option for people with sensitive skin or for projects worn next to the skin like hats and shawls. Full of twist and bounce Alpakka Ull would also work nicely with textured patterns. The cherry on top is that it is machine washable on a gentle wool cycle so great for kids too.

Sandnes Garn is an icon of Norwegian knitwear which was first founded in 1888 in the industrial city of Sandnes. They are one of the oldest spinning mills in Norway.
