    When it comes to stashing yarn, every knitting and crocheter has certain fibres that call to them. Some people are drawn to luxury fibres like silk and cashmere and others can't resist that unique skein of hand-dyed sock yarn. When it comes to buying in quantity, though, you want something you know you can use. Stashing a sweater's worth of yarn – purchased either with no plan in mind or with a plan that is later forgotten – means knowing that the yarn you're purchasing is going to be perfect for a wide range of projects.

    Berroco Ultra Alpaca is a worsted weight blend of 50% Peruvian Highland wool and 50% alpaca. It's warm, but not heavy, and the wool and alpaca work together to make this a yarn with beautiful drape and excellent structure. Whether you're knitting a cabled sweater, such as Amy Christoffers' White Pine Cardigan or something soft and airy like Hannah Fettig's Effortless Cardigan, Ultra Alpaca is an excellent choice.

    Spun as a three-ply, Ultra Alpaca is a nice round yarn with a slight halo, making it perfect for colour work and cozy warm winter accessories like Jared Flood's Turn a Square hat or a pair of Northman or Fiddlehead Mittens.

    See what we mean by stash essential? Ultra Alpaca is ultra versatile, making it exactly the yarn you want in your stash. Inspired? Feeling a case of startitis coming on? We have 100+ colours in stock – and we're always adding new colors.
