Titicaca is an absolutely beautiful and soft yarn. Holst Titicaca can be knit alone in 1 or 2 threads for fine soft shawls or light clothing - and even for babies items. It is also a perfect companion thread when knitted together with Holst Supersoft, Holst Coast and Holst Noble. The alpaca will add softness and a light fluffiness to your creative project.
