Please be aware: ALL ALPACA YARN IS NOT CREATED EQUAL! We get yearly histograms on each of our alpacas that show us how fine it is, what the spin fineness is, and what the comfort factor is. Be sure to find this out before you buy your yarn! What feels soft to the hand may not feel so soft next to your skin. If you are buying yarn that the seller says is "soft," be careful! Get proof of that with an actual test that measures true softness and fineness.
This yarn was spun from the fleece of Rhiannon. Her histogram shows that the spin fineness of her fleece is 19.8 microns and the comfort factor is 98% meaning 98% of the people wearing this fleece against their skin will find it comfortable. Anything under 20 micron is considered ULTRAFINE. You will feel that ultrafineness in this yarn!
This is a fine yarn that will not withstand heavy use. Great for items worn next to the skin and light and delicate use.

I do not personally enjoy books that are written in, folded or creased, dirty or stained, ripped or torn, or falling apart at the seams and bindings! I particularly think hardcover books are the way to go, although I do have a few paperbacks for sale. Therefore, I give them each my "inspector's eye" and try to detail for you every flaw that I can find. PLEASE call or communicate if you have any questions and want further pictures. I do not usually list anything that is not in very good or better condition. But sometimes, some books are in less than very good condition and I can't resist listing them because they are still worth buying!
