"Rust" Alpaca single (set of 3)

18.00

A trio of Alpaca singles, perfect for a series of little weavings or other small projects. This is from our first Alpaca shear and was spun from a mill prepared roving of the combine neck and leg fiber or our 4 boys. This makes a sturdy yarn but may not be as “next to the skin” soft as you might expect Alpaca to be.

All the disclaimers: 

*We do our best to photograph our yarn in natural light and represent its true color but screen colors do vary.

*All our yarn is hand spun in small batches for a variety of reasons, mostly because I get bored and am on to the next thing!  Although I do take notes on color and technique, occasionally, the chance of a yarn being duplicated are slim.  If I make multiple skeins of something they will be together in the same listing.

*Our yarn is made from fleece from real sheep, our sheep!  A few of our sheep are coated but most of them go au natural.  Their fleece is skirted (noticeable grunge and hay is removed), washed and picked.  It is then dyed, sometimes with natural dyestuffs.  You may find an occasional piece of hay or leaf from the process.  Think of it as the sheep seal of approval.
