Item details

Our sinfully soft & luxurious 100% Royal Baby Alpaca Roving comes from our own herd of 30 alpacas who live here on our ranch. This fiber is specifically from one of our males, Resolute, and is an unbelievably soft luminous creamy white with a micron count just over 19 microns.

The riving is from Resolute's cria's fleece and because baby fleeces are like velcro, there tends to be some VM in the roving, but not so much that you can't pick it out.

Roving is a perfect fiber for spinning, felting and all kinds of crafts. It is warm yet light, and is also hypoallergenic.

Sold in 2 oz increments - when ordering, a quantity of "1" indicates that it is 2 oz.

Colorway: Undyed Natural Dark Fawn

Our fiber is processed locally at Wild West Fiber Mill in Elizabeth, CO.

Your roving will come in a ball. If you would like it packaged differently, please add a note to your order at checkout.

☼ Hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry. This is not a super wash..agitation can cause felting!

☼ Every effort is made to realistically photograph my fibers. However, different monitors perceive colors differently, as does the human eye.

☼ About Alpaca Fiber: Many times you will see alpaca yarn listed as Baby or, as this yarn is, Royal Baby. If you have wondered what this means, it has to do with the micron count (diameter) of the fiber. The lower the micron count, the softer the fiber. Baby does not mean it is from a baby alpaca.
The standard I use for grading my alpaca fiber is the following from the AFCNA (Alpaca Fiber Cooperative of N.A.):
♥Royal Baby: <20 microns. ♥Baby: 21-23.5. ♥Superfine: 23-26.9. ♥Adult: 27-31.9
As a point of comparison:
Angora Rabbit: 12 - 15 micron. Merino: 12 - 23. Cashmere: 15 - 17. Camel: 16 - 23. Yak: 16 - 23. Bombyx Silk: 10 -14. Tussah Silk: 23 -30

Please feel free to convo me with any questions.

Happy Trails,

Diana
