Up until now Blue Moon had only offered one Alpaca blend yarn, Peru. The same folks that created Peru have come up with a yarn that Tina from Blue Moon wanted to just call Crack, it is that wonderful...so she settled on Crackpaca! This is most definitely crack for knitters luckily, there are no harmful side effects and as far we I know, it's legal!
It's equal parts baby alpaca and a superfine merino and this is what we think makes it so wonderful. The superfine aspect of the merino enhances the baby alpaca by adding in elasticity and buoyancy without taking away that ultra softness that we love alpaca for. And if that were not enough, they added in a little cultivated silk to the mix – just enough for a little sheen and strength.
