Item details

This handspun art yarn is a one-of-a-kind creation. First, it begins with the sheared hair from my white Suri Alpaca named Candy. I skirt and comb the fiber so it is ready for blending. This mix is blended with Heathered BFL Wool roving that is hand-painted. I also have some white silk added in for shine. I weigh the fibers then blend them on my Ashford blending board to create rolags. Finally, the rolags are handspun on my Lendrum spinning wheel. After setting the spin on the yarn with a wash, the hank is ready for a new owner. This art yarn looks custom with its alpaca hair locks and other unique details.
I love being part of the entire process, from feeding the alpacas to washing the yarn for the final setting. I'm a bit of a yarn snob...I mean connoisseur ;-) and I like catering to other people who care about the use of actual animal fibers (no acrylics), the treatment of the animals and story of the farm, and the custom look that only comes from handspun art yarn. You can learn more about our farm at www.SteinadlerFarm.com .

ARTIST NOTES: I love living in the mountains and wanted to capture the beautiful colors. The green is very natural and reminds me of evergreens. The blue is deeper, like the darkness of the sky near nightfall. And the natural white alpaca looks like the rocks and stones in the mountainside.

I love seeing the final products from my handspun yarns. It's like watching my babies grow up. Please share your products on Facebook or Instagram and tag me @steinadlerfarm . Who knows? I might pick you to win some free product ;-)


FAQs

I accept custom and personalized orders. If you have a dream yarn in mind, I will work with you to design the yarn and spin it. Pricing will be based on weight, fibers used, and any additional resources needed (i.e. dyes, beads, etc.).

All of my yarns are washed in specialized animal fiber cleaner I buy from Lambspun in Fort Collins, Colorado. This helps set the twist. It also means the yarn should not have any additional shrinkage so long as you use a delicate cleaner, handwash, and lay flat to dry.
