Alpaca Weaving Yarn ~ Bark
$ 26.00 USD $ 20.80 USD
A deep brown alpaca weaving yarn, the color of tree bark, dark chocolate, and wet earth when you're planting your garden in early spring.
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. Read all about this yarn and see the available colors here.
It comes in two sizes, both suitable for warp: 2/16 laceweight or 3/10 sportweight. The 2/16 is perfect for lightweight shawls and scarves and has 2,150 yards per 1/2 lb. cone, 34 wpi, 18-24 epi. The 3/10 works well for projects that need a bit more warmth and fullness and has 950 yards per 1/2 lb. cone, 20 wpi, recommended sett of 10-16 epi.
Beautiful color, used for both warp and weft...2 cones made 3 perfect scarves! So soft and drapes well!
Love the colours , so soft. Always my first place to shop.
This yarn is the softest, lightest yet strongest alpaca that I have ever woven with. A true pleasure!
I wove a sample of alpaca for a scarf and it was so soft! Wet finished in cold water, hung dry. It did fine. Seemed to hold up fine under tension. I have the Cozy Poncho to do so I will see how this handles with larger pieces. Even the sample draped well. I also plan on doing double weft/warp pieces.
I love weaving with this yarn. I have made 2 of the ponchos and they are soooo soft!!
