View Full Version : Superwash alpaca?

09-30-2006, 10:32 AM
Is there such a thing, or is it not possible because of its different structure of alpaca compared to regular ol' sheep wool?

I am wanting to knit some baby socks for my punkin, her little feet get soooo cold, and alpaca is supposed to be warmer than wool, but handwashing items is like ironing around here, done as rarely as possible!

I googled "superwash alpaca" and found a few listed, but they are few and far between so I guess they aren't widely available.

Karabella marble yarn (http://www.jimmybeanswool.com/secure-html/onlinegen/currgen/Karabella/Marble.asp)

This one is a little vague..it says machine washable no, but also says it is..
:?? I guess you'd have to ask them.

I remember someone had a similar post here before and someone found a site that sells it for $14.99 per regular size skein...
