This bulky yarn started out as a light fawn natural color. You get great depth when dying over colors. Because of the dying technique, each skein will be subtly different from the next. When working a project using more than one skein, it's best to alternate between balls every few rows.
The blend is 80% alpaca from our farm and 20% local sheep's wool. The wool gives the yarn the loft it needs to be a great bulky yarn that isn't so heavy that it sags. We use low micron alpaca and wool so you get a soft squishy yarn that you will just love!
Each skein is 100 yds. It is a bulky and just loves to be knit on a #10 US needle. The mitts pictured were made with one skein of this yarn.
