Moore House Yarn



Moore House Sock Yarn

Use our Moore House Yarn Guide to help you select the most suitable yarn for your project! Please note that we follow the standard yarn weight system developed by the Craft Yarn Council of America when labeling our yarn weights.

Be sure to look at our Moore House Paca Pacs which include a knitting pattern and the required amount of Moore House yarn to complete the project! The Paca Pac is an ideal gift for a knitter or purchase one yourself to make a special someone a luxurious gift that they will treasure for years!

Moore House Royale - Our Royale yarns are the ultimate in softness as they are made with the softest grade of alpaca we offer, < 20µm in fibre diameter! Royale yarns are suitable for items that will be worn next to the most sensitive skin. We offer Royale yarn in lace and fingering weights. Some Royale yarn is available with a blend of cultivated or Tussah silk.

Moore House Premier - Our Premier yarns are very soft and lovely, made with alpaca in the low 20µm range. This yarn is buttery soft and is suitable for items worn next to your skin such as scarves, shawls, hats, and fine sweaters. We offer Premier yarn in both lace weight and sport weight. Some varieties are blended with soy silk or bamboo.

Moore House Traditions - Our Traditions yarn is made from alpaca fibre in the mid to upper 20µm range. Since we have the mills dehair all fibre destined for Traditions yarn, this lovely yarn is very soft with dramatically less prickle compared with other yarns in the same micron range available elsewhere. More than one alpaca fibre expert has been fooled into believing that these yarns are made with Grade 2 alpaca! Traditions yarn is most suitable for items such as sweaters, hats, and mittens. It is available in DK and Aran weight and some varieties are blended with bamboo, soy silk, or merino.

Moore House Majestic North Sock Yarn - Our Majestic North yarn is made from upper 20µm fibre and is blended with merino and bamboo especially for knitting socks. The bamboo adds durability as well as antimicrobial properties.  Most Majestic North yarn is hand dyed in a large variety of colour ways.  It is also available in natural honey.


Moore House yarns are delivered to you in centre-pull balls rather than in skeins so that you can begin knitting right away without the fuss of winding it into a ball yourself. Of course, if you would rather receive the yarn in skeins, we can arrange that for you. The price of our yarn reflects the fineness of the alpaca used in the yarn, whether or not it has been blended with other fibres, and the weight to which it has been spun.

Please note that the stocked quantities of specific yarns are always flucuating.  If you are planning a project that requires a large amount of yarn, such as a sweater, please contact me to ensure I have enough of a particular weight and colour of yarn to meet your needs.

HST is included in all prices.  Shipping is extra and is calculated at checkout. 

Use the Shopping Cart if you wish to pay with PayPal or credit cards.  Quantities of any item can be adjusted at checkout.

If you wish to pay by Interac E-Transfer or personal cheque, please E-mail us to place your order.  Your item(s) will be shipped once payment has been cleared.
