Handspun yarn - Alpaca / Merino wool, worsted weight, 370 yards - Clouds at Dawn

$42.00 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

This yarn is in shades of light and dark gray.

This fiber is a blend of 70% alpaca and 30% Merino, creating a yarn of great strength, warmth and durability. It should be suitable for wearing next to the skin.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 7.3 oz., spun at an average of 810 ypp (yards per pound). These 370 yards wrap at approximately 8-12. The higher density of the alpaca makes the yarn heavier than a comparable 100% wool yarn would be. Like all handspun, it is somewhat thick-and-thin.

My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
