Alpaca Ultimate Yarn was started in 2008 by two alpaca studs in Australia and one in New Zealand. The business was re-branded in 2016 using the name Australian Alpaca Yarn to convey to customers who we are and since known as Australian Alpaca Yarn/Alpaca Ultimate.
Australian Alpaca Yarn / Alpaca Ultimate yarn is made from our own fleece as well as fleece sourced from leading alpaca studs in Australia. All fleece to be used to produce our yarn is scientifically grid tested to determine micron and then thoroughly skirted to eliminate all the unwanted fibre and contaminants. It is then sent to New Zealand for processing into our luxurious yarn by a leading commercial mill with decades of experience in spinning and professionally dyeing all types of yarn.
This is why when you purchase any of our 1,2,4 and 8 ply or boucle range from Australian Alpaca Yarn/Alpaca Ultimate, you are purchasing a soft handling, hard wearing luxurious yarn that Australian Alpaca Yarn / Alpaca Ultimate has become renowned for.
Alpaca Ultimate yarn started production in 2008 as a collaboration between two alpaca studs in Australia and one in New Zealand. They developed the procedures for producing a high quality yarn using Australian and New Zealand alpaca fleece which was spun and dyed at a leading commercial mill in New Zealand. The quality of the fleece and skirting processes have been improved over the years with Alpaca Ultimate Yarn now fully owned by Australian Alpaca Yarn, using all Australian alpaca fleeces but still processed into yarn at the same mill in New Zealand.
