Du Store Alpakka
Norwegian Du Store Alpakka specialises in the production of luxurious Alpaca yarn.
The company is one of the founders and a driving force behind the Mirasol Project and supports local communities in Peru through the sales of their yarns.
Faerytale is an unbelievable lightweight yarn in 100% tightly spun, brushed Alpaca wool.
Brushing the Alpaca gives a fluffy quality and the yarn has a soft and delicate feel to the skin.
Fin, which is a Norwegian word for both delicate and beautiful, is a lovely soft yarn with an incredible sheen (that no picture can reproduce with full justice).
Fin has a twist that gives strong stitch definition suitable to show off your favourite garments.
Unbelievably soft Mirasol is made from the Alpacas tended by local communities for generations in the Peruvian highlands.
By purchasing Mirasol yarn you are supporting the shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition.
A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a children's school and centre in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno.
Hexa is super-soft and thick, still as airy and lightweight as feathers. Almost like witchcraft, hence it's name, however it is modern technology that has made this combination of thickness and light weight possible.
Du Store Alpakka Hexa is constructed from a single strand of twisted fibres that are knit into an I-cord tube. The finished yarn is, in fact, a knitted tube.
