The undyed white alpaca is from an animal which boasts a 16 micron count fiber which is considered Royal Alpaca (event softer than Baby Alpaca.) The Sari Silk Scrap was purchased from a great Etsy shop called theSheepandI.

I purchase quality raw alpaca fleece directly from select local alpaca breeders. Then I carefully sort the fleece, examining it a handful at a time picking out any vegetable matter or unqualified fibers. The fiber then goes off to my local mini-mill where it is washed, carded, and turned into roving after which I spin it into yarn on my wonderful Spinolution Mach II spinning wheel.

The yardage is measured by wrapping the yarn on a 2-yard niddy noddy as loosely as possible so as not to stretch it, therefore the measurement is an approximate, not exact.

Length: 28 yards
WPI: 5
Type: Bulky
Spinning Style: semi-worsted
