Item details

This is for 4 oz.

$10.00 per oz for bulky.
Double plied in 2 shades of brown

Bulky 2 plied handspun yarn from our own alpacas. Good on #10 to 15 or larger sized needles.

Excellent for warm hats, scarves, mittens, afghans, etc.
Original designer yarn by Laura Mae.
100% finest alpaca fleece from our own alpacas.
Significantly warmer than sheep’s wool without the “prickle factor”.
Absence of allergen-laden lanolin (that often contributes to allergies).

Our yarns are of PRIME 100 percent ALPACA fleece and HANDSPUN. As designer yarns, no 2 yarns are exactly alike. There are variations within the skein, such as thicker and thinner.
BUYERS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT COLORS AND SHADES MAY DIFFER as viewed on DIFFERENT MONITORS and under DIFFERENT LIGHTING. So feel free to call or email for precise description of color.
We can make up the yarn of your choice: color, ply, thickness, combination of different colors plied together.Yarns may be ordered plied with an invisible elastic thread which is used for cuffs and headbands. (Alpaca is said to have little or no “memory”; thus when stretched out, will “forget” to spring back.)

Special orders are welcome for your own designer handspun yarn, choosing color(s,), thickness, quantity, elasticized or not. Following is a chart for yardages and prices.

Baby alpaca:

$10.00 per ounce for bulky plied ( $10.50 per oz. for elasticized). On the 2-ply, it is done with the plying)
yardages are approximate.
very bulky yarn 15 yds. per oz.
medium bulky 30

single ply 40+ depending on how fine it is.
I can have yarn ready within 3-4 days to a week (time to spin, ply, wash, dry.)

Not-so-baby alpaca yarn (soft but not quite as soft as baby; still from the prime fleece of the alpaca but may be from a little older alpaca)

$8 per oz. double-ply
$7 per oz. single-ply
A photo of the contributing alpaca(s) accompanies each skein.

Washing instructions: warm or cold water with mild soap or shampoo. Squish, but do not rub or twist. Rinse, squeeze out excess water. Roll up in towel to absorb water. Lay out on dry towel.
