Our Paca-Paints yarn is 100% superfine alpaca, DK weight, and is handpainted in wonderful variegated shades and exciting colors. This colorway is called "Ruby Slippers". Each 100 gm skein is approximately 220 yards. The gauge = 22 st / 4" (5.5 st/1") using US #6 (4.0mm) needles. The pictures really don't do justice to these beautiful colors.
