Asana Bulky is a plush and huggable combination of Superfine Alpaca and premium Peruvian Highland Wool, designed to be as beautiful to the eye as to the hand. Each of the three strands are dyed individually before being plied together, giving Asana depth and richness in color as well as its unique texture. This bulky weight yarn is easy to knit, light in weight, and delivers superior insulation. Unlike harsh wools, Asana Bulky provides incredible warmth with a delicious softness against the skin. Galler Yarn is spun from alpacas who are lovingly raised and tended 10,000 feet above sea level in the Andes mountains of Peru. Living at high altitudes in freezing cold, these animals have softer hair with more thermal capacity than their lowland cousins. Highland Sheep are unique to Peru and combine the Merinos softness with the durability of Corriedale. The resulting fiber is lofty, voluminous and wonderfully toasty.
