Hedgehog's Alpaca DK has a touch of alpaca added to its merino base to add a bit of loft and warmth to this sumptuous yarn. Dyed in the extraordinary colorways that are distinctively Hedgehog, we're excited to start casting on scarves, mitts and, of course, sweaters!
Speaking of sweaters, Beata's Le Pouf Sweater is perfect for Alpaca DK! While Beata knit her sweater using 2 strands of fingering yarn (and we have some the fingering kits here!), you'll need just one strand to knit the DK version. You'll need 985-1750 yards of Alpaca DK for sizes XS [S, M, L, XL] [2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL] and size 6 needles. The pattern is free on Ravelry.
