Finest Royal Alpaca by Atelier Zitron is one of the best alpaca yarns on the world market.

In the highlands of Bolivia live the alpacas who contribute the fibres for Finest Royal Alpaca. The animals find ideal conditions in the high altitudes with extreme temperature fluctuations. The fineness of their fibres is of 19 - 20 microns.

The animals are only partially sheared every 18 months.

Alpaca has special climate characteristics. It warms more than wool, is stronger and more resistant, yet much lighter. Highly recommended for fine and durable knitwear.

You can wear the yarns of Atelier Zitron directly on your skin, like a "second skin", because it is tested according to the highest standards in Germany (

I am in love with this yarn! The stitch definition is wonderful. Martina, the seller has provided information regarding the yarn and how the colors are safe with no harmful additives. Yarn came in desired time, wrapped beautifully with lovely notecard and an envelope of tea. I have only shopped at one yarn store in New Orleans that took such time to wrap yarn as if it were a gift and Martina, certainly did the same. Will definitely order from her again. Will follow up with a photo, when shawl is finished, if I am able to attach to this completed review.

This yarn blew me away with how soft it feels! The colour is absolutely rich and beautiful, but again I still can't get over how luxuriously soft and gentle it is on the skin!! For me this is definitely an ideal choice for a sweater!

The yarn quality and colours are stunning! The colours of the yarn are pretty acurately desplayed in the pictures; they are not any brighter in reality but rather muted. I'm excited to see how it knits :)
