You might know that here in the Pacific Northwest, we're famous for rain. The silvery gray fleece of our oldest boy, Silverton, sometimes reminds me of the occasional gray sky we see out here, but with the flashes of blue that we get, too. This yarn is a 50/50 blend of Polwarth sheep wool and alpaca from our boy Silverton. I dyed the Polwarth in turquoise and purple and blended it by hand with our silver alpaca's soft fleece, and then spun it by hand, to create a great fingering 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.
