Working with US alpaca breeders, BagSmith has created a super bulky alpaca yarn specifically for creating rugs, cushions, blankets and wraps using Big Stitch Tools. Each “bump” of our big stitch yarn weighs 35 oz and is 130 yards. Bumps are currently available in natural colors including cream, light fawn, medium fawn, dark fawn. The fiber content is 67% alpaca,33% wool & 6%. Each bump yields a knitted rug approximately 24” x 27.” Two bumps are recommended for a blanket of approximately 36"x50." Please note that this is natural fiber and no two bumps are exactly alike. Expect a iittle shedding during knitting or crocheting. Wash with SOAK or other rinse free soap in cold water. Air dry.This alpaca yarn also lends itself perfectly to arm knitting. You can make 6 or 7 cowls from just one bump!
Made a simple throw with two "bumps." Very heavy and somewhat awkward to work with, so took a little getting used to. First time being forced to felt skein ends together and to felt in the ends after the project was done.
Really lovely and fun product. Unknown on 6th Jan 2015

This yarn is awesome. Soft to the touch, handles well...two thumbs up! I am looking forward to working with every single color. I thought it was three colors at first but when I found out it was seven...christmas came early for me!!! Felicia on 5th Nov 2010
