Shepherdess Alpaca Sale



Purl Soho’s Shepherdess Alpaca roams across the imagination, wild and free. One hundred percent undyed, handspun alpaca, it is straight from the grassy highlands of Peru and the artisans who live there. Each skein of this extraordinary yarn expresses the spirit of the women who created it, and it is their deep knowledge and passionate energy that makes Shepherdess Alpaca so incredibly special. A nice and bulky 2 1/4 to 3 stitches to the inch on US 10 to 13 needles, we love Shepherdess Alpaca for quick sweaters and warm accessories. Choose from a natural palette of four undyed colors: Heirloom White, a warm and creamy ivory; Wood Thrush, a toasty mix of browns; Starling, a moody black with hints of light; and Bantam Hen, a little something of everything!

SPECIAL OFFER: While supplies last, buy 10 or more skeins of Shepherdess Alpaca (in any color or mix of colors!) and get Luna, a Shepherdess Alpaca pattern booklet from designer Jen Geigley... for free! Put the yarn and book in your cart, and the price of Luna will be automatically deducted from your total.
