This listing 4 oz of buttery soft medium brown CVM (California Variegated Mutant) wool 66%, fawn baby alpaca 27%, and sari silk in jewel tones of gold and green. It is a reprise on a previous yarn originally inspired by great soul music and my favorite naughty horse. As you may know, CVM is a rare breed fine wool developed in California when a wise rancher decided to breed for color instead of culling it from his flock. Staple length on these fibers is about 4 inches. It has excellent crimp and elasticity. Alpaca should also give it good drape, but I have not done my test spin/knit yet.
All of our animal based yarn and spinning fiber is a US small farm product, purchased at fair rates from the person who raised the animal in humane conditions and processed with a low carbon footprint. We do not use thermal or chemical processes to remove vegetable matter, so you may find the occasional trace of hay fleck, but it will not diminish your spinning pleasure. These wool fleeces were jacketed. Our roving is shipped in boxes, not poly mailers, to prevent excessive compression and abrasion. It should arrive ready to spin without further prep.
