This batt is 100% alpaca from our boy Cinnamon. I had some of his previous fleeces processed into commercially carded batts, and these batts are a lovely creamy white. This batt is for 4 ounces of fiber.
How Much Do I Need?
Most of these spinning batts are sold by the ounce. So you may be wondering how much you need to buy to make something. The long answer is, "it depends." But the short guideline is this:
- 4-6 ounces for small projects like hats, mittens, gloves, and socks
- 6-8 ounces for medium projects like scarves and small shawls
- 8-12 ounces for larger projects like large shawls
- Sweaters and similar large items of varying size can take anywhere from 16 to 32 ounces
About this Alpaca
Cinnamon -- named because of the Cinnamon-colored patches on his nose and tail -- is our feisty alpaca. He's always ready to run up to the neighbor's dog when he patrols the fence and tell the dog that he's the boss.
