This beautiful ivory alpaca yarn is from Johnnie’s 2017 shearing. He is a member of our herd and produces a really lovely dense, soft fiber. The deep taupe of this yarn would produce some really rich colors in your own dye pot.
His fiber was professionally processed and spun at Mystic Waters Mill in Wisconsin. Some nylon was added for sock durability and wear.
We hire professional shearers who get the job done humanely and quickly which reduces stress on the animal. Can’t say the animals enjoy the process, but they feel great when it’s over with. 🙂 All our boys are spoiled and love attention and treats.
