This special Local Alpaca Yarn wound with Rowan Tweed is characteristically variegated, adding to its special nature and charm. Alpaca fibers do not contain lanolin or oils, making them hypoallergenic. That means that people with wool sensitivities can wear garments made with alpaca yarns. These are also hollow core fibers — warmer than wool, but with the ability to breathe.

Notes on Lambspun yarns:
Each skein contains approximately 190 yards. Please note that the amount of color variegation varies from skein to skein. Undyed, natural colors of Alpaca Yarn vary slightly, reflecting the natural variation in the animal’s fleece. Color variegation in hand-dyed yarns is a result of the hand-dyeing process. It is possible to request more or less variegation. Be sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project, as we cannot guarantee the availability of additional skeins of a single dye lot.
