This yarn is mill spun from 100% alpaca fiber and is a two ply Worsted weight yarn. Stramba Farm and Fiber Mill, an artisan mill, in Pennsylvania did the processing of this beautiful yarn. The alpaca that grew the fiber for this yarn is named "Derecho" and lives at our farm, Alpaca Meadows, in Mansfield, Ohio.
One skein should be enough to knit a basic hat or narrow scarf. Crochet could take more. Be sure to order enough yarn for your project. We get a limited amount of alpaca fiber from our herd each year and when it's gone, well it's gone.
Alpaca Fiber is one of the world's rarest natural fibers. Luxuriously soft, exceptionally light, and warmer than wool, alpaca fiber is abrasion resistant and maintains its insulating properties even when wet. It is considered by many to be a "miracle fiber". You will definitely enjoy working with it, and wearing it!
