Jumbo Alpaca is a big yarn for bold projects!
New to the Studio this week, these bulky, beautiful skeins are sure to inspire grand designs. It’s perfect for last-minute gifts, since it works up quick, and will make a big splash with anyone on your list!
The Jumbo Alpaca is a blended yarn from our LB Collection, made up of equal parts Baby Alpaca and Fine Merino Wool (43% each), and 14% Polyamide. The Baby Alpaca and Fine Merino Wool are smooth, and extra-warm, and the polyamide adds durability and strength to the fiber. It’s a jumbo yarn (Jumbo 7), and must be hand-washed and laid flat to dry. Each skein weighs 8.8oz, and measures 62yd.
Classic & Bright Colors
White, Pink, Aqua, Green, Light Grey, Dark Grey – make it dreamy for the chunkiest afghans, statement scarves & cowls, and other projects with over-sized personality. Not pictured below: White & Light Grey.

Get in on the color-tipping trend.
If you’ve got a pattern you love for a scarf, a throw, or a simple hat, you could swap colors partway through and earn some style points. Color tipping is a very cute trend, making fiber goods look dip-dyed for an extra pop of color. Check out some ideas for conventional projects that could use a lift:
Jumbo Alpaca will become your new bff for projects that will go quickly from start to finish, whether you keep them for yourself or plan to give them away this holiday season. Swing by the Studio to get a feel for it, sink your hands into a big skein, and fall in love.
