Island Alpaca yarn is one of the most precious yarns you will find. Using the Island Alpaca harvest from our spring shearing, this yarn is spun at a local New England mill using only environmentally safe products.
This mini-mill uses a state-of-the-art fiber washer and fiber separator which is used to eliminate vegetation, guard hair and much shorter "second-cuts" if there are any. This process increases dramatically, the "comfort-factor", optimizing the overall quality of the yarn, leave you with softest end-product available.
Treat yourself or a friend to this wonderful, "home grown" yarn. All skeins are labeled with the name and a photograph of the alpacas that created this yarn. Hand-wash in cold water using a mild soap. Do not agitate or use chlorine bleach.
