For this sweater I used the Kindred Yarn from We Crochet. Kindred is the perfect blend of Pima cotton and baby alpaca. It is such a soft and light yarn and has now become one of my favorites! It’s a DK weight yarn which makes it perfect for spring garments.

Some other yarn options are CotLin or Swish DK. CotLin is a very affordable cotton/linen blend that drapes beautifully for garments. Swish DK is a superwash merino yarn that is so soft and squishy!

  1. Hi,
    I can’t wear alpaca. I really would like to try this sweater but need a substitute yarn. Do you have a good cotton recommendation? Thanks!
