Item details

55% white Corriedale Sheep and 45% white and fawn Alpacas

This beige alpaca / corriedale wool yarn is a collaboration of two shepherdesses......myself and my friend, Cary Smith of Serenity Acres in Alma, Michigan, who raises Corriedale sheep.

Stonehedge Fiber Mill in East Jordan processed and spun the yarn for us. We are very proud of this Michigan mill because they made the yarn for the athletes' sweaters in the Olympics closing ceremony. That's awesome for a small, family run mill tucked away in the woods of Michigan.

About the yarn, it's a stunning, soft, tan / beige, 2 ply, with plenty of bounce and elasticity. I would recommend using it for hats, scarves, mittens, socks, shawls, and warp for weaving.

Besides being a super yarn for knitting, crochet, and weaving, this yarn felts beautifully to a lovely, soft fabric.

250 yards / 228 meters - 2.6 ounces / 76 grams - Sport Weight at 15 wraps per inch

Most buyers purchase from my shop using PayPal or Etsy's Direct Check. These are easiest for me. But if you rather send a check or money order, that's fine too.
Fiber folks must be conscientious and dependable because I have never had a bad transaction. If you need time to pay or have to cancel a purchase, just let me know. I'm naievely trusting and trustworthy.

Returns & exchanges

If you aren't happy, let me know. I will do an exchange or give your money back, or whatever it takes to have a happy customer. Buying fiber is hard from a picture. Ideally, you need to feel, caress, and, yes, even smell it.

Please let me know if you have allergies to fragrances because I store my fiber with lavender sachets. I can rewash the yarn before I send it out.
