This yarn comes from fleece that was shorn from a gorgeous llama in upstate New York. He looks black when you see him out grazing in the field (his favorite activity, by the way). However, as you can see by his yarn, the fleece is a charcoal gray with touches of off-white and some hints of light tan. I spun this yarn as always on my trusty Kromski Minstrel spinning wheel and plied it 2 times so that the result is a soft, variegated gray. The fleece was washed several times as was the completed yarn and it is ready to use.
The yarn hank weighs 6 ounces and has 194 yards. It is approximately worsted weight and will knit up well on size 8 - 9 needles. You can make a cushy hat, fingerless mittens or a beautiful cowl. Or think of using it as a trim or addition to a garment made with more traditional yarn.
All of my yarns are one-of-a-kind since each hank is unique.
