Paka Hat yarn bundle is NOW available as shown in Chibi Paka Chunky, New from Ikigai Fibers.   

Chibi Paka Chunky is a combination of baby alpaca with superwash merino wool results in great body and stitch definition that is heavenly soft with a wee bit of halo.

Why superwash wool? We believe finishing is key to beautiful, professional looking knitwear. Our blocking involves soaking the finished project, followed by intense steaming. With superwash, you don’t have to worry about felting, and the result is a smooth, even knitted fabric that will stay that way. We recommend hand washing all finished knitwear.


This yarn bundle includes 4 skeins Chibi Paka Chunky, 1 Leather Tag - Alpaca + pattern.
