Wool & the Gang – Alpachino Merino
Super soft and super squishy, Alpachino Merino is a delightful chunky yarn that brings together two of the silkiest fibres out there. A scrumptious mix of 60% Merino and 40% Alpaca, this yarn is perfectly suited to snuggly garments and chunky accessories – from staple sweaters to plump hats and cowls. The high alpaca content makes this fabulously soft yarn a great option for people with sensitive skin and is perfect for projects that are to be worn directly next to the skin.
Recommended for a 6.50 to 8.00mm needles, Alpachino Merino will knit up in no time and is an ideal easy to knit yarn for beginners. The gentle twist of this yarn will work well to accentuate textured stitches such as moss stitch or bobble stitch but would also be equally as suited to colourwork projects.
The fresh, contemporary palette is inspired by the rainbow landscapes of Peru and comes in a range of eight bright and neutral hues.
