Save the Yarn – byKrøjer

is a small webshop, located in Switzerland, selling exclusively sustainable yarn. What makes the yarn extra sustainable is that it is a surplus product from the textile industry. This also means that the yarn you will find here you cant find anywhere else.

The yarn you find at Save the Yarn. You won’t find it anywhere else, as it’s all from surplus or overproduction from the textile industry. You also can’t be sure of reordering.

100% Alpaca

100% pure alpaca is a true luxury yarn. It will be very suitable for a nice sweater, vest, or cardigan or maybe a nice warm cosy blanket. You can of course knit and crochet with it, and the yarn has a nice thickness, so it goes quickly once you get started. We estimate that 2 skeins will be enough for a sweater in size M, but of course it depends on both pattern and knitting style etc.
