This is the most beautiful quality yarn.
I solely use Australian Alpaca Yarn in the production of my kids knitwear label and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The 4 ply yarn is perfectly spun to use on my knitting machine and the 8 ply is my go-to for all my hand knit items.
The feedback from my customers is always positive.
I choose Australian Alpaca Yarn for the impeccable quality, the softness and the beautiful colour palate.

Jennmark Alpaca is a small cottage industry situated at Collinsvale, Tasmania specialising in machine knitted item such as Beanies, Scarves, Mitts and Wraps. We are very selective in the yarn we use. The yarn from Australian Alpaca Yarn is by far the best we have used on the machines. It is soft and the texture is beautiful just right for the machines. The yarn dyes beautiful keeping its softness after being dyed. We recommend this yarn for knitters or machine knitters.
