Sandnes Garn's Borstet Alpakka wool yarn is a scrumptiously luxurious treat to knit and wear. Unbelievably soft and delicate alpaca wool is blended with the tiniest amount of polyamide to give it durability. Providing a gorgeous drape, Borstet Alpakka works beautifully for sweaters, shawls and scarves...anything close to the skin.
Sandnes Garn was founded in 1888 & is still privately owned and operated in its original location in Sandnes, Norway. The majority of the wool for their yarn is locally sourced from Norway, while great care is taken to ensure any imported materials are ethically sourced and mulesing free. Sandes Garn specializes in high-quality knitting yarns for the crafting enthusiast and we are sure you will fall in love with their yarn as much as we have!
