This is a perfect all-purpose yarn. A beautiful true black color, and the softest llama and merino wool fiber make this yarn absolutely fabulous! Perfect for socks, hats, gloves, scarves, anything! Felts very well, too; makes a strong felted material. It would also be great for weaving and crocheting. The yarn is 75% llama fiber and 25% US-grown merino wool.
The fiber that went into this yarn comes from animals on our small family farm. We raise llamas for their fiber, and have it processed into yarn and roving. This yarn includes fiber from May, the first baby llama born on our farm 17 years ago! This yarn is one of a kind- no two blends are ever the same. Make sure to purchase enough for your entire project. Four other colors of yarn are also available, please visit our Etsy shop for more details.
The fiber that went into this yarn was extremely clean before processing, and was washed again before it was spun. The yarn was millspun, and is very even and consistent. There is hardly any vegetation (hay, grass, etc.) and no dirt or dust. The fiber was also dehaired during processing, yielding an exceptionally soft yarn. The skeins were washed again after spinning to set the twist.
The yarn is 3-ply DK weight, approximately 4 ounces per 250 yard skein. Knits up great on size 5-6 needles.
This listing is for a single skein of yarn, but there are several skeins available for purchase.
