I went to Peru a few years ago and while in the Cusco region met with several woman who hand-spun and dyed alpaca yarns and used them in their weaving. I was lucky that they let me purchase a few balls of yarn after watching their process, as I thought I would use them in my own knitting. However, sadly a few years have passed and I haven't used them, and I think it is time to pass them on to someone who will. I did include some photos from my trip and where I purchased the yarns.
There is a total of 3 balls of yarn in this listing, each of them very tightly spun. They yarns are soft and beautiful. Here are the details for each yarn included-
- smallest ball, a pink-lavender alapca yarn that measyres 3" in diameter and weighs 103.6grams . - beautiful purple-lavender shade of alapca yarn that measures 4.5" in diameter and weighs 271.4grams.
- UNDYED heather gray alapca yarn that measures 3.5" in diameter and weighs 116.8 grams
All of the yarns were meant for weaving, and the width of the yarn measures about 1-1.5mm in diameter.
