Chaska Alpaca

We often use the term ‘Yarn Snob’ in our store. This is not a derogatory title, in fact it is used as a complement…life is too short to knit bad yarn!

Our Chaska Alpaca yarns are utterly glorious, and the choice of ‘Yarn Snobs’. Our range includes a fine sock yarn, a divine 8ply, an organic cotton and alpaca blend, and our most popular yarn ever … the iconic brushed Alpaca Air.

Pssst … we have an exclusive, concise range of hand-painted brushed Alpaca, its rather ‘Groovy.’
