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.
The first thing you'll notice about any knitted tube yarn, especially in natural fibre blends such as the 100% Alpaca Hexa, is that it tends to be much stretchier and loftier than its traditionally twisted counterparts. This means that it is essential to make your swatch to calculate your tension, Hexa will stretch when knitted, and since we all knit differently this will result in varied tensions. Hexa is just as perfect for that light weight summer cardigan to cover your shoulders as it is for layering up in the colder winter season.
