Manestrale consists of an exclusive blend of 68% baby alpaca, 12% merino wool (mulesing free), 16% polyamide and 4% polyester. Polyamide and polyester form the fine thread Lurex which gives a lovely sparkle.
An alternative to mohair, use it in combination with other yarns to add a delicate halo. Or knit or crochet with it on it's own to create an ethereal, shear fabric.
