Pure alpaca is amazing. A. Ma. Zing. This is one of my favorite pieces that I make with it. Alpaca can be challenging because of it’s density. So while being super soft, the bigger the piece is and the less open the weave, the weight would get more significant quickly. A sweater out of pure alpaca would not work, but this hat design was so perfect. You had the weight that held the hat in place, you had this intense warmth and there was also the softness that would wear well and held it’s shape.
