Lace weight

This fine Alpaca yarn is one of our favorite yarns at Önling! We often use it as accompanying thread in combinations with other types of yarn. In this way we can add the exquisite softness of Alpaca 1, as for our "Daggry" hat and shawl, where it is used with Isager Highland Wool. Another benefit of combining Alpaca 1 with other yarns, is that this can create a beautiful mixed color, as for instance in the sweater Delia, where the combination with Isager Merilin (wool and linen) creates a unique color and structure. Knitting double stranded also allows you to work at a larger needle size, and thereby you can use Alpaca 1 for knitting patterns that require a different gauge. 

Alpaca 1 can also be worked single stranded, for instance for lace shawls

Origin of the yarn:

This alpaca yarn is spun and dyed in Peru for the Danish yarn brand Isager. Isager is a respected brand among knitters in Denmark and worldwide, due to their high quality and luxurious yarn. 

The company was founded by Åse Lund Jensen, who contributed greatly to the art of knitting with her yarns and knit designs. Today Isager is owned by Marianne Isager and her daughter Helga Isager, who continue to inspire knitters through their knitting books. 

Isager today produce around different 20 types of yarn, all of which are of high quality and lovely to work with. See more Isager Yarn here.

Sustainable yarn:

Some of the colors in the Alpaca 1 series are named "Eco", meaning that they are un-dyed and therefore more environmental friendly in their production. 

Wool is a natural material, and sustainable as it requires only limited processing in the transformation from wool to yarn. Wool is also sustainable in use as it does not need washing as often as other textiles, hanging it outside to freshen up will often be sufficient.

Washing instructions 

We recommend hand washing your Isager yarn at 30 degrees. 

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
