Handspun and Handknit Alpaca Vest

Alpaca Vest

This is a simple vest that I knitted from some of my handspun 100% alpaca yarn from my female, Arabesque (aka "Pinka"). This little one produces the nicest, fluffiest yarn! And, it is blindingly white. You can't beat alpaca yarn for softness or warmth! I would stack my alpaca vest up against any Polartec 300 performance vest as a serious warmth layer in cold weather, but it's much nicer looking than Polartec. However, if I ever make it again, I will use needles that are 2 sizes smaller to knit the bottom ribbing.


Note that I am wearing this vest directly against the skin.  If you think alpaca yarn is too itchy to wear against the skin, stop buying the bad alpaca yarn or fleece and get some that is fine and free of coarse guard hair.
