Alpaca Undyed Yarn
One of the most common livestock animals in South America, alpacas are the lifeblood of many South American ranches and farms. The majority of the alpaca we feature in our blends is huacaya: the fluffy, teddy-bear like animals make the perfect fiber for our favorite bare yarns! While most of the alpaca we purchase is white, we do seek to add colored fawn and gray alpaca into our lineup in the future, as well as the more exotic and coveted Suri Alpaca fiber, which creates different dimension with sheen and silkiness. As with all of our fibers, we seek to purchase the raw materials from farms and ranches that are producing fiber as their primary goal, and have high values for animal husbandry and care.
