A fresh take on chunky yarn. Each ball of ReLove Alpaca is made from our exclusive blend of family-raised alpaca and premium American recycled plastic bottle fiber. So soft and cozy, you'd never know that each 50 yards of ReLove Alpaca rescues some 10 plastic bottles from being landfilled. Utilizing premium recycled material also gives your creations added resilience.
ReLove Alpaca is spun in small batches at our partner women-owned, women-run mill in Washington State. Each bump is carefully crafted, taking 1-2 hours to spin. ReLove's super chunky weight makes it a dream to work with, a full size blanket knits up in no time!

• Deciding between ReLove Alpaca and ReLove Merino? Our alpaca variety is the softest chunky yarn we make but is also a more delicate fiber. It's perfect if you're looking for that unmatched softness of alpaca and plan to be a little more gentle with your blanket (possibly don't share it with pets or small kids too regularly). Our merino variety is very soft and squishy but a little less silky to the touch than its alpaca sister. But also a bit more resilient! Both are incredibly cozy and warm, and add unique texture to a room like only a super chunky yarn can.
