96% Brushed alpaca and 4% Nylon
Børstet Alpakka consists of alpaca fiber twisted together with a strong nylon thread, which holds everything together when the alpaca fibers are brushed. The result is a soft, light and airy yarn with a fuzzy texture.
Alpaca is about three times warmer than ordinary wool and thus insulates well. The fiber is hollow and breathable, so it feels warm in cold temperatures and cool in warm ones.

For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Centrifuge well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
