i hand spin alpaca fleece from raw into either skeins, or balls if requested of approx. 50g. All skeins are made to order in any natural colour from our own herd (see our 'Meet the Team' page or check out our photos).
All yarn is made with 100% pure alpaca and as it is hand spun natural variations in thickness will occur.
Alpaca fleece does not contain Lanolin and is therefore not greasy so can be spun from raw. It is washed after spinning but all products made from the yarn should be hand-washed to avoid shrinkage and/or felting.
Other characteristics of alpaca is that it is naturally anti-allergenic and highly insulating due to the fibres being completely hollow unlike sheep wool trapping more heat for added warmth.
