Item details

Redhead! This is our second generation redhead roving. Beautiful, luster and incredible softness. We took last year's redhead roving and kicked it up another notch. not bi-alpaca, it's Tri-camelid. We're not kidding, although come to think of it there's still a pinch of dyed red mohair in there, because not all redheads were born that way. Here's the breakdown: Irish Setter red CVM wool (California Variegated Mutant) 21%, Huacaya alpaca in Maroon and rosy fawn 30%, Maroon suri alpaca 23%, maroon suri llama 20%, dyed yearling mohair 7%.
You may ask, WHY??? OK, well, first of all, because we could, but seriously, the bi-alpaca blends are really special. Maybe not the first fiber a novice should spin, but they bring into play several kinds of features that seem to work best when you mix fibers. They are not wooly to the touch and have gorgeous drape from the alpaca, but the fine, crimpy wool gives a little grab to help with drafting and excellent memory to the yarn. The range of colors expressed in the alpaca, llama, and sheep worlds provides an opportunity to blend colors sufficiently where there is depth and variation, much like your natural hair color has variation.
What do you do with this luscious stuff? First of all, definitely take the opportunity to try it spinning fine. laceweights and fingering weight yarns will spin quite easily. The fiber will also felt. All fibers used have a staple length of greater than 3 inches (and most more like 4-5 inches), so it will be pill resistant.
This listing is for 2 ounces. All fibers used were US small farm sources, including Peeper Hollow, Woods Edge Wools, and Kuska Paku.
The last picture contrasts this roving with another bi-alpaca roving, a "blond"!
