Sandnes Garn – Børstet Alpakka (Brushed Alpaca)
A deliciously soft aran weight yarn with a beautiful brushed handle. Borstet Alpakka is both airy and warm and it works well at a variety of gauges. It knits up in a amazingly light fabric – a great option to knit a fluffy oversized jumper or a cardigan. The colour palette is full of Scandinavian sophistication and include soft pastels and earthy tones.
