Fino Yarn

Fino YarnFino Yarn

Gifted By: Alpaca With A Twist

Reviewed by: Ashley Alfirevic, Editor of

This Fino hank is absolutely regal! It's super soft and luxurious--this yarn is named Dutchess Blue for more than just its gorgeous color. You'll get the royal treatment when you knit with this upscale blend of fibers. Made of 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk, this yarn is 100% lavish.


The Italian word Fino is associated with all things fine, thin, subtle, and pure. Often used to describe the most exceptional Italian sherries, Alpaca With a A Twist uses it to describe their most outstanding lace yarns. Only the best alpaca fleece goes into these luxurious hanks. Because the direct English translation means "up to", I think it's fair to say that this is the pinnacle of luxury yarns. This exquisite yarn is one that all other alpaca brands should aspire to be.


This thin, lightweight yarn is perfect for making gossamer shawls. Any intricate lace pattern would look elegant when knit with this yarn. With its lustrous sheen and breathtaking softness, this yarn would make fancy evening attire fit for a queen. With its beautiful light blue color, this yarn could be used for icy winter wear or breezy summer knits.


If you're looking to make something both supple and bold, then this is the yarn for you. While single strands will yield sheer, delicate shawls, two or three will result in soft, sleek wearables to keep you warm and stately.
