Alpaca, wool, and silk lofty and light. A great balance of all three fibers; they complement each other and make a lovely yarn. Alpaca takes dye lighter than most other fibers, so Peru will be a little lighter in depth than Blue Moon's other yarns. A well rounded yarn, Peru also has great stitch definition. A wonderful sweater yarn!
