A beautiful and blow yarn made from a combination of baby alpaca, merino wool and Pima cotton - Chaska Wara is soft, fluffy, and absolutely itch-free.

Chaska Wara is the perfect choice for cozy sweaters, trendy slipovers, and accessories like cowls, scarves, and shawls.

So, what is blow yarn?

Blow yarn is named aptly by the process in which it is produced. Most yarns are created by spinning fibers together into a long strand. The process of creating blow yarn is quite different.   It starts with a very fine mesh tube, typically made of polyamide. Loose fibers, often wool or alpaca, are blown into the mesh tube. The fibers end up “trapped” within the mesh tube, creating the bulk of the yarn, while the fibres’ ends stick out of the mesh tube, creating a fluffy aura. 

Wara's combination of bulky center and fluffy aura gives it a special squishy feel and lightness.
