Sandnes Garn today holds the position as the largest producer of hand knitting yarn in Northern Europe, one of the world’s most up-to date spinning mills – in one of the oldest factories still running.

ALPAKKA is a soft and comfortable yarn that is about three times warmer than ordinary wool and thus the most insulating yarn in our product range. The fiber is hollow and breathable, so it feels warm in cold temperatures and cool in warm ones. Alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin.

Our alpaca is of Superfine quality, the term used for alpaca fiber between 25-26 microns (micrometers) and is one of the softest alpaca grades used for hand-knitting yarn.
