Item details

Alpaca 75%/Merino 25% blended yarn
Soft yet sturdy
Dark fawn blended with white merino
Sport weight
Processed for us by Spring Harvest Fiber Mill, Sunnyside, WA

This is a yarn blended from Duncan's dark fawn fleece with 75% alpaca and 25% white merino.
It has a slightly "frosted" or heathered look. Quite soft but should do well with sturdier usage like caps, scarves, mitts, socks, sweaters. Using a blend with merino gives it more "memory" to help your knitted wear keep its shape better.

PLEASE BE ADVISED that there is no insurance for books sent by media mail. If the item is damaged when you receive it because of shipping, Spin A Yarn will not be liable for your loss. If you want it insured before shipping so you can reclaim your loss, please choose PRIORITY MAIL which comes with insurance.


Before a book is shipped it must be paid for. You can do that by credit card, debit card, or Etsy gift card. I always take a second look before I ship to make sure the item has been accurately described. If I find a discrepancy, I will contact you with detailed pictures before I send it. If you determine you do not want it, the transaction is easily cancelled and all your hard-earned money is returned via Etsy.
If you desire to cancel your transaction BEFORE I have shipped it, again, the transaction is easily cancelled by me and you will be refunded the full price through Etsy.
If you receive the item, and you are not happy with it, please contact me within 5 days of receiving it. I may have you send it back and refund you the original cost of the item with shipping. Or I may just tell you to keep it and send you an agreed on adjusted refund. I will send you that through Etsy within 7 days of our agreed on adjusted price.

Returns & exchanges

I definitely want you to be pleased with your purchase. My hope is that what you buy is in even better condition than described and you will be delighted. I try to carefully inspect each item and describe it accurately. Please feel free to contact me if you need more pictures or explanation on the condition of anything you are unsure about since most things are vintage and are considerable years old. If you are unhappy with your purchase, you can send it back with a full refund.

Additional policies

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!
