This yarn is made from 5 different alpacas who graze on our pastures in Christiansburg, Ohio. Sparkly nylon starfire was added to give it a shimmery look. Skeins made from 5 different alpacas, black, different shades of brown and white. Added some nylon Starfire sparkle to give it some bling. 250 yards approximately. Double Knit weight., 2 plyed skeins weigh approx 3.4 oz. The picture does not do it justice.. It was difficult to get the sparkle to show up in the pictures, starfire is made from nylon, The yarn is very soft. DK weight. This was made by a USA cottage industry mini mill who does work for me. I raise the alpaca, skirt the fiber, and I give the mill instructions on how I want the mill to process the fiber.
