This line of alpaca yarn is called Symmetry. Symmetry yarn is 100% grown, processed, and manufactured in the U.S.A by a small staff at a company called The Alpaca Yarn Company in Pennsylvania. Symmetry is incredibly soft, lofty, and light. It is a Sport weight yarn made with baby alpaca and fine wool.
Sport weight yarn is a type of yarn that is slightly lighter than DK (double knitting) yarn, but slightly heavier than Fingering weight yarn. It is often used for lightweight garments and accessories such as hats, shawls and wraps, and is known for its versatility and drape. It is classified as a number two on the Craft Yarn Council’s Standard Yarn Weight System. Yardage required will vary according to the pattern being used, and whether you are knitting or crocheting.
