Llama-rama! on cones

  • the same blend of half llama & half Romney wool that is in our skeins. A yarn with lovely drape and color plus the elasticity and memory of wool. The rich heathered colors are created by dyeing some of the wool fleece and blending before spinning, so the colors all available on cones.
  • design: 2-ply, semi-worsted spun; heathered colors created by blending natural color llama with undyed and dyed-in-the-wool Romney fleece.
    size: fingering weight, 19 wpi 1400 to1 600 yds per pound
    suggested use: warp and/or weft. Our friend Beth Wilson of The Barefoot Weaver's Studio wove a beautiful plaited twill throw at 12 epi.
    care: hand wash warm with low agitation, lay flat to dry or can be dry cleaned.
  • fiber source: hand selected alpaca fleeces from Dark star Alpacas, Buttonwood Alpacas and Alpacas at Sunset Acres, Clarke County, Virginia and Merino from Black Sheep Farm, Waverly farm and Mere laur Farm in Loudoun County, Virginia
    fiber content: 80% alpaca and 20% Merino wool.
    Llama is a camalid fiber, actually more like hair than sheep wool which has crimp. Llamas natural colors are different than sheep and we love the ecru, brown and bittersweet brown in this yarn which are not dyed at all. The strong and drapey nature of this yarn lend itself beautifully to weaving.
