Alpacas are related to llamas but are smaller in size and have a much softer fleece. Many people sensitive to sheep wool wear alpaca comfortably. This alpaca comes from Borgstein Alpaca Farm in Medfield Massachusetts. It has been has been spun and processed into small batches of super fine, silky soft, natural and luxurious un-dyed yarn. The colors are the colors of the animals in the herd. They are not dyed.

Designed and hand-knit by me, Kathy Zola, in my smoke-free and pet-free New England home.
They are knit to order so please allow time for me to make them.

Hand wash in cool water, wrap in a towel to blot out extra water, air dry flat.
Note: Washing in a conditioning shampoo can enhance the soft appeal of this fiber.

These mittens coordinate well with the alpaca hats shown here:

    Purchased the mittens and coordinating hat. Absolutely beautiful!! The quality of her craftsmanship and the substantial & soft yarn is amazing. Love them so much just ordered 2 more sets to share as gifts. Thank you!

    These are gorgeous mittens. They’re soft against my skin and the yarn is beautiful. I love the thoughtful details like the open thumb - these mittens are beautiful but also really practical. Kathy was also quick to respond to a question I had and the mittens arrived soon after I placed the order. Looking forward to wearing these for the rest of winter!

    I was so excited to get these, they were well worth the (short, in my opinion) wait to get them made to order. These are very well made, warm, and cozy! I probably could have gone one size up but that's lack of attention and care on my end and they are still perfectly comfy. I get chilly easily and now that I've put these on I don't want to take them off - and I don't have to with the flip top! I can keep working comfortably at my computer with the tops flipped back :) I also very much appreciated all the info these come with on the source of the alpaca wool used - the natural color of the white is gorgeous!

    LOVE them - perfect fit! Warm and soft! KathyZolaFiber is awesome, works with you every step of the way. Custom is no problem-she made them to exact measurements with a change in the thumb! Pictures coming later from Alaska! Thank you, Kathy!

    Bought these for my daughter and she loves how soft and warm they are plus the rich brown color! Thank you!
