Description

Navajo 3 Ply Alpaca Yarn Handspun & Hand Dyed - 105 yards - Worsted Weight - 9-11 WPI - spinning navajo ply is one of my all time favorite things to spin. The different tones of blue and purples in this yarn are wonderfully vibrant.

I knit with both handspun and mill spun yarns; but there is something about handspun. Once you have knit with it you will know. There is such character in handspun because it is not spun in a machine consistent manner. It has it's own inconsistencies because no person can spin like a machine. Every spinner has there own way of spinning. If you are looking for a "clear" consistent look to your project than you may want to work with mill spun. But if you are looking for some excitement and character; then handspun is the way to go.

This is 105 yds of handspun, hand dyed alpaca fiber in the shades of violet, spruce, periwinkle and turquoise. The yarn is left in the dye bath until all dye is absorbed and then is rinsed several times to insure no dye remains. Although great care has been taken; please be aware dyed fibers can possibly bleed thru - care should still be taken when washing. Hand wash items separately in cold water, mild detergent, lay flat to dry.

6 hours were spent spinning beige alpaca roving into approximately 210 yards - 9-11 WPI -worsted weight yarn (This yarn was spun from carded fibers; making this a "woolen" spun yarn that is very soft and lofty.)- which I then split into 2 skeins of 105 yards. It was at this point that I then hand painted them using acid based dyes; in the colors of violet, spruce, periwinkle and turquoise.

If you would like this skein wound into a center pull ball or a round ball simply state so in comments.

All products are processed and stored in pet free/smoke free environments.
