Floof DK has been spun using an acrylic core that has been shrunk with heat to trap the baby alpaca fibres.  Accordingly, the yarn will knit up in a similar way to merino and won't stretch out of shape which is a quirk of alpaca yarns.  It is also less likely to pill or to shed.  The yarn is super soft and a joy to knit with and to wear.  You can use it as a substitute for any pattern that requires a merino DK weight yarn.

This yarn dyes up very softly and colours are less intense than our other bases.  Some of the darker shades can dye up a little unevenly, we have made sure to highlight this in the main photograph.
