Item details

The hand-spun 2 ply yarn from 100% Romney wool and (approx) 50/50 Romney/Alpaca

Skein #7: 81yards, 1.1oz, $28.50 (pictures 1 and2 )
Skein #6: 208 yards, 2.8 oz, $72.00 (pictures 1, 3 and4 )
Skein #19: 208 yards, 2.8 oz, $72.00 (pictures 1 and 5)

This hands-spun is made up of Foxy, a silvered Romney ewe and a lovely natural chestnut brown alpaca fiber. The fibers were processed hand using hand cards and a drum carder. Because of the difference in fiber length( Foxy 4-5", Alpaca 1.5-2.5"), there tendency for the wool and alpaca to draft out separately causing pleasant variant in the color and texture of the yarn.

This yarn is spun more tightly than my cloud and lock spun yarns. My intent was to make practical hard-wearing woolen socks out of it. It would also function well for outerwear and work mittens. Not next to skin soft.

Note . These yardage could be stretched by combining it with Skein #8/ Grizelle and Suri Llama, as it has similar weight and structure. Grizelle is Foxy's daughter and the natural coloring is nearly identical.

It has been washed in an organic liquid detergent and gently fulled.

This is a hand produced fiber product. You will find the occasional bits of vegetable matter, some more some less. There will be the random dog, cat and rabbit hair.

All Items are described as accurately as possible.
