This medium brown alpaca yarn was created from the herd at Ancient Treasures Alpaca Ranch in Arvada, CO. Each skein is 2 ply sportsd weight measuring approx 3 oz and 120 yards. Shephards Mill in KS processed the fleeces into yarn. Use knitting needle sizes 3 to 5 US (3.25 to 3.75mm) or crochet hook E4 to 7 (3.5 to 4.5mm).

The medium brown yarn comes from Marlo who is a Huacaya alpaca. Huacaya (wha-KAI-ah) fleece is mostly hollow (for warmth), soft, dense, crimpy and gives a woolly appearance. They were first imported into the U.S. in 1983-84 and adapt to many different climates. There are 22 natural colors within the breed.

Perfect for any of your fall color creations including hats, gloves and winter scarves. Knits up very easily and works will for crocheting too. I used this yarn to create the brown alpaca hat on our site. One skein will make a hat or pair of gloves. 2 or more will create a warm scarf for the fall/winter season. Finished product should be hand washed in cool water and air dried.
