Berroco Ultra Alpaca – re-stocked! August 25, 2014 – Posted in: Project Ideas, Re-stocked

ultra_alpaca_lgUltra Alpaca is the ideal balance of luxurious super fine alpaca and Peruvian Highland wool blended together and spun up perfectly round and light. The range of colors includes solid shades, natural heather shades and dyed heather shades. Each is beautiful on its own or combined in endless possible color work combinations.

100 g / 198 m / 5 sts = 1″ on 5 mm needles / 50% Alpaca, 50% Wool

We love this affordable yarn as a go-to for warm and lofty sweaters, shawls, and winter accessories. And a browse of the over 30,000 projects knit with Ultra Alpaca on Ravelry shows that many people agree with us!

Here are just a few project ideas that caught my attention this morning:

This last one is not actually knit with Ultra Alpaca but I’ve already swatched and plan to knit one up with Ultra Alpaca just as soon as I can get a couple of other projects off my needles!bua_fold_turn
