Alpaca Weaving Yarn ~ Iris
$ 26.00 USD
This electric purple alpaca yarn is the color of being a teenager, first days of summer, a world wide open. It is flecked with turquoise and hot pink, and every time I look at it I see something new.
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 or 3/10 sportweight. The 2/16 is perfect for lightweight shawls and scarves and has 2,150 yards per 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 cone, 20 wpi, recommended sett of 10-16 epi.
Available on 1/2 lb and 2.2 lb cones.
