2 Ply Handspun Alpaca Yarn - All Natural Black - Grade 3 - Fine 23-25.9 microns - Alpaca - Sport Weight (Woolen Spun), 225 Yds - 14-18 WPI
I knit with both handspun and mill spun yarns; but there is something about handspun. Once you have knit with it you will know. There is such character in handspun because it is not spun in a machine consistent manner. It has it's own inconsistencies because no person can spin like a machine. Every spinner has there own way of spinning. If you are looking for a "clear" consistent look to your project than you may want to work with mill spun. But if you are looking for some excitement and character; then handspun is the way to go.
This is all natural black alpaca from the prime blanket fleece that was mill processed into carded roving that I then handspun into a single and then plyed it with a brushed kid mohair and silk yarn (70%/30%) that I purchased at one of the many wonderful fiber festivals I frequent. The mohair/silk yarn had been hand dyed the colors of purple and gold and went beautifully with the black alpaca.

Your package will be shipped within 1-3 days of our receiving notice of payment from Paypal. In most cases we ship via the USPS - First Class Mail; except for rug yarns. Due to the rise in cost to ship this item via USPS we now ship it via Fed Ex which takes approximately 4 business days once shipped. We will e-mail you with shipping confirmation and tracking information once shipped. Since we ship through the U.S. Postal Service USPS or Fed Ex within the Continental U.S., please allow 5-10 business days for your order to arrive (sometimes longer for the busy holiday seasons).
We will ship USPS First Class Mail outside the Continental United States, this is the most economical way of shipping however, there is no confirmation of receipt, therefore International orders are non-refundable.

The recipient of an international shipment is responsible for any of these additional fees. Please be aware of this if you are sending an item as a gift.
Shipping out of the United States frequently takes more time and can be held up in customs. If proof of delivery, expedited shipping or insurance is required, additional charges will be billed via Paypal along with order information, again once payment is confirmed via Paypal, shipping information will follow.
If it looks like it’s going to take longer or we’re temporarily out of order on an item, then we’ll do our best to Email you and let you know.
