Manestrale (moonbeam) is a super soft, light and airy yarn consisting of 68% Baby Alpaca, 12% Merino Wool (non-mulesing), 16% Polyamide and 4% Polysester. The Polyamide and Polyester make up the fine thread of glitter, which is soft and subtle. Manestrale is specially produced for CaMaRose by a family owned spinning mill in Italy. As with all CamaRose yarns, the environment and animal welfare are taken into account when producing Manestrale.
Manestrale combines beautifully with other CaMaRose yarns such as the Yaku and Lamauld. Manestrale is suitable to knit cardigans, sweaters, beanies, baby garments and shawls when using one thread, but you can also combine multiple threads to create chunkier knits.
