Cria is the name for a baby camelid such as an alpaca, llama or vicuna. It is derived from the Spanish word cri­a, meaning "baby."

Why is this Alpaca yarn so soft? SimpliCria is made with the finest 1% of all Alpaca Fleece. In HiKoo's Peruvian mill, Alpaca is hand sorted two times. During the first sort, the top 10% of the fleece is set aside as Baby Alpaca (21-22.5 microns). After hand sorting the Baby Alpaca, the softest 10% is then designated as Super Baby Alpaca (19-20 microns). This light DK weight yarn has a chainette construction that works up into amazingly soft and luxurious accessories, sweaters and more. We cannot stop petting our own stash of SimpliCria, it is simply wonderful.

This yarn is made of two threads with a superb matte and shiny effect. Its uniqueness can be best seen by using purl stitches. The thread is soft, voluminous and pleasant to work with.

Fiber Content: 100% Super Baby Alpaca.

Yardage: Approximately 95 yards of yarn in each 25 gram skein.

Gauge: Approximately 5-6 stitches to an inch on U.S. size 6-10 needles (4-6mm).

Weight: Light DK.

PLEASE NOTE RE GAUGE: While the label has the above noted gauge information SimpliCria works up at a sport weigh for us on U.S. 5-7 needles. As always, please swatch before starting your planned project.

Care: Hand wash in cool water in gentle detergent. Lay flat to dry.
