A cone of this weaving yarn is exactly what you're looking for when you're looking for alpaca: super soft, cushy, and warm. I source this yarn directly from Arequipa, Peru, where it is made in a mill that has been creating high-quality alpaca yarn for over 90 years.
It comes in two sizes, both suitable for warp: 2/16 laceweight (18-24 epi) or 3/10 sportweight (10-16 epi).
Available on 1/2 lb and 2.2 lb cones.
Thick and super soft and delicious. A bright white that can be used as is or dyed. 50% cotton / 50% milk protein fiber.
Made in Canada. 1/2 lb. cone has 600 yards. 16 wpi, recommended sett of 8 - 10 epi
A clean white silk yarn ready to be used as is or dyed by you.
This gorgeous silk yarn is sourced from China by Treenway Silks in Colorado. Treenway Silks is will known in the weaving community for their expert dyeing and beautiful quality silk. If you're looking for a truly luxurious weaving yarn, this is it.

Gorgeous 50/50 blend of cotton and linen weaving yarn that I import directly from Italy. It is spun and dyed at a small family-run mill in Florence and isn't available for sale anywhere else in the US. You can create something truly beautiful and unique with this.
