This spinning fiber consists of 50% Babydoll Southdown Wool and 50% Alpaca. The wool is from the sheep which I raise on my own farm and the alpaca is locally sourced from select breeders. This is a mix of natural dark browns, blacks and a little white mixed in resulting in a dark brown blend which I have overdyed with a mix of dark green and a dark orange with some of the natural brown showing through. Two braids available at $25 each.
The wool is in the category of a "fine" wool which is very springy and spongy and has a staple length of 2 to 3 inches. It is great for spinning or needle- felting, but not recommended for wet-felting as it resists shrinking. When mixed with alpaca, it becomes my favorite blend. It makes for pleasant spinning and a nice stretchy soft yarn. I hand-dye my wool with an environmentally friendly dye called Greener Shades.
I ship by U.S. Postal Service from Concrete, WA. The shipping costs I have listed are typically within the range of the actual postal charges, however they ARE estimates. If Seller's shipping charge is higher than stated in the listing by more than $2, Seller reserves the right to request additional payment from the Purchaser to cover the actual postage required to send the item to Purchaser's destination. If Purchaser determines that the additional funds required for the actual shipping cost is higher than acceptable, Purchaser may cancel transaction with a full refund issued immediately by Seller to Purchaser.
Please understand that shipping costs more for the seller than just the postage. If I find that the actual shipping cost is 75 cents+ over what I estimated in my listing, I will refund you the excess charge. Purchasers outside the U.S. are responsible for any additional fees that may be charged at customs. Seller is not responsible for loss or damage which may occur during shipping.
