Approx. 22 WPI (lace weight)
This yarn is a blend of alpaca wool from our boy Silverton, Merino wool, and cultivated silk in a 50/25/25 blend. It's a laceweight 2-ply with lovely drape and sheen. I created the fiber by blending Silverton's washed fleece with a Merino/silk blend on a drumcarder, and then handspun the yarn.
About this Alpaca
Silverton is the old man of our herd. But he's sweet-natured, even if he's shy. He still loves to eat minerals out of our hand and on a sunny day you can sometimes hear him humming in the sun. His fleece is a beautiful, soft silvery gray with lots of depth that makes it one of the most fun to work with from our herd.
