Beautiful sheen on this one! The tencel stands out enough in this yarn to create a highlight that is stunning to behold. The yarn is smooth and silky. The Alpaca fiber comes from our animals that are shorn on our farm in Pennsylvania. This isn't your average alpaca yarn. The colors pick up so beautifully on this yarn. Some of the most vivid shades I've ever dyed. Each color is layered with at least 3 shades, so each color has amazing depth.
