Pure Vicuna: 100% Vicuna Yarn

Yarns are 1oz 28 grams lace weight and 217.41 yards per ball.

The size of the needles/crochet and gauge really depend on the pattern. We have projects that use size US 00 all the way to size US 7, the size most common is US 5 or 3.75mm.

We recommend washing your knitwear hand in lukewarm water. Dry flat and under no circumstances should you dry it on any heat source.

It will naturally become softer and fluffier with each wash.

Pure Vicuna: 100% Vicuna Yarn

Vicuña wool is the most luxurious fiber in modern times

Vicuña is finer than any other fiber in the world, with a micron count (the width of a single strand) measuring only 8 to 13 microns. 

It is so soft and sensitive that it is usually left untreated in its natural color -- a spicy cinnamon shade. 

If you have to compare it to cashmere, it's a much softer touch. 

It can be described as a "solid softness" compared to a "fuzzy softness" similar to qiviut. 

We are proud to be the suppliers of this extraordinary knitting yarn for North America. 

Windy Valley's vicuña is imported from Peru following these strict guidelines and meets all certification standards. 

Because of its rarity and unique properties, we are often sold out or have a long waiting list of knitters hoping to get their hands on a skein. 

You can now acquire a small rare treasure that will bring you a great deal of pleasure while knitting... 

A fiber that is truly in a league of its own.

Great Yarn

My first order took forever to get to me. However, my second order got here very quickly. I assume you are now keeping an inventory in the US. Great product. I will be ordering again.

Wowza! I bought this to knit a hat for my husband (Christmas gift). I’ve been reading about this amazing fiber for years and it is definitely worth the praise. He loves the hat but is paranoid that he’ll lose it so he’s very cautious when and where he wears it.

Because it’s such a delicate fiber, I added rows of navy blue silk. The vicuña is just as soft as the silk. Absolutely incredible! Love-love-love!

I bought this as a gift

The person who I bought this for was really happy to get it.
She made some heart pattern with the cloth, and it seems like 1 roll is too little to do much with. I would recommend buying like 2 or 3.

Good things do come in small packages

I was intrigued when I learnt of this yarn. I decided to lash out and treat myself to see what the fuss was all about. Yes it is expensive and understandably so once you know more about its origins and production. I am not a fantastic knitter by any means so found a simple lace scarf pattern, i did practice with a cheap yarn till i got the pattern in my head. The Vicuña yarn is ethereal to knit with and not until you knit it up can you appreciate the softness that you do not feel when you first feel the skein and you can make a beautiful piece from1 or two skeins . I am saving to buy some more since i have found a couple more patterns which will look and feel stunning with this yarn.
