"Vicuna fibre is one of the finest in the world with a micron count of just 12 (in comparison Cashmere is 14-16 and Merino is 18-24). It is of course known for its softness and warmth.
 
The Vicuna, a relative of the llama and national animal of Peru, is found in the high alpine areas of the Andes. Vicunas produce just 0.5kg of wool every 3 years and, due to conservation efforts, remain wild animals that are not farmed. They are notoriously difficult to breed. The fibre and animal is so highly thought of that the Inca considered it illegal for anyone but royalty to wear it.
 
Vicuna coats retail for between $21,000 and $46,000 with a simple scarf costing as much as $4,000. Quite simply this is the most exclusive hand knitting yarn in the world and there are just 10 of these presentation boxes in Europe."
 
This presentation box includes two skeins of pure Vicuna yarn (125 yards/25 grams each), a stunning lace shawl pattern, a set of size 4.5mm circular bamboo knitting needles, a full-colour booklet that tells the unique vicuña story, and a certificate of authenticity.
