Our Espresso yarn (grown in 2020) is a three ply, worsted weight yarn and is approximately 150 yards in length per skein.
Made from our very own alpaca's fiber, this spun yarn truly embodies our farm-to-yarn passion. Our yarn is perfect for knitted or crocheted garments, and is strong enough to stand up to good wear.
We dont have any medium grey alpacas, so we have combined the fiber from our beautiful black alpacas with our cream alpacas, to create this special deep charcoal color. The alpacas who grew this fiber are Ellie, Largo and Annie. Ellie and Annie are two very best friends, who are adventurous and the leader of the ladies. The first to greet us, and eager for treats, these two will snack on any and everything! Their favorite treats are blueberries, carrots, alfalfa, and kale.
Each skein is the natural color of the animal that grew it, because, in our opinion, nature always does it best.
Please note, our fiber and yarn may contain small pieces of the earth in it, as the animal that grew it was quite fond of rolling in it ;)
Handwash ONLY, with cold water and a small amount of dish soap. Try not to agitate the fiber. Do not use a wool or lanolin soap. Hang flat to dry.
We are a small, family owned fiber farm. Each of our items are handmade and one of a kind! We think they are really special. Please be conscious with your purchase, as we are not able to offer refunds.
About Our Alpacas
Alpaca fiber is naturally hypoallergenic as it does not contain lanolin. Because of this, alpaca fiber is naturally super soft. We shear our animals once a year, and only use the softest part of the fleece to be spun into yarn.
Our alpacas are raised down the hill from our home, where we get to interact with them throughout the day, spraying water on hot days, offering carrots (their favorite treat) and building a relationship with them. Each of our alpacas has a unique and quirky personality. We love them deeply and are thankful for the opportunity to care for them!
