Alpaca Weaving Yarn ~ Marigold
$ 26.00 USD
A glorious weaving yarn the color of farmers market egg yolks, a fistful of marigolds, the sun rising on a Saturday morning.
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 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.
Available on 1/2 lb and 2.2 lb cones.
