Alpaca Direct: Your local online yarn store

Alpaca Direct is your local online yarn store. While our brick and mortar store is located in Hayden, Idaho, we have an astonishing array of yarns, fibers, tools, and knitting and crochet patterns conveniently available to you at any hour of the day or night. The convenience of online shopping makes finding just the perfect yarn or crochet hook simple, and free fast shipping on USA orders over $49 delivers your next project to your doorstep in lightning fast time. Your satisfaction is second only to delivering top quality products, and we gladly offer real knitting humans to answer the phone during regular business hours. Our aim is to inspire you and help you fulfill your fiber dreams!

Alpaca yarns, socks and specialty items are unique to Alpaca Direct. Alpaca fiber is distinctive in so many ways; it is a hollow fiber with up to 3X the insulating properties of wool, it has tremendous wicking capabilities, and it is hypoallergenic. Add the wide array of natural colors, extreme softness, tensile strength, excellent drape and superior lustre to that list and you can see why we love alpaca so much. Alpaca blends with and enhances other fibers such as wool, silk and cotton to create truly magical yarns. Pure alpaca and various blends come in each yarn weight, and are available in natural and dyed colors. The experience of knitting or crocheting with alpaca yarn will transform you forever. What alpaca yarn does for your fingers and knitting soul, alpaca socks will do for your feet. We have a size and style to suit your every need. We also carry luxurious baby alpaca scarves, shawls, slippers, and ponchos. Wrap yourself and those you love in the softness and warmth of alpaca.

While alpaca is at the core of our tremendous yarn selection, we also feature basics and specialty yarns in a wide range of fibers, styles, weights and a dazzling array of colors. Hand dyed sock yarns by Zen Yarn Garden, Dream in Color, and Manos del Uruguay are just a few in the ever popular fingering weight. We also feature Malabrigo and Madelinetosh wool and wool/blend yarns, favorites by Plymouth and Berroco, and so much more. You’ll find basic acrylics and superwash wool yarns. You’ll always find exceptional prices. You’ll find daily deals on each and every product we carry - huge discounts on specially chosen items that are posted in the morning and end that same day. Most of all, at Alpaca Direct, you will find the convenience and community available only at your local yarn store - online.
