We have made this yarn using the fleece of mother and daughter – Evie and Lucina- 2 of our own alpacas. They are both huacaya with Evie being white Lucina being fawn and .
We have handcrafted this yarn using Evie’s white and Lucina’s toffee coloured fibres. We have used only the animals’ natural fibres, not blending them. Our yarns are semi-worsted; they may contain some vegetable matters and slight inconsistencies. The yarns can pill which is not a defect, but a natural occurrence of these fibres.
All of the fibre used in our alpaca yarns has been washed and processed on our property. We use rain water to wash and no harsh chemicals during the washing process so that the grey water can run directly into our orchard. This practice therefore supply valuable water all year round to our apple trees.
Our solar system supplies most of the electricity for our processing.
We want to take care of our property, our land and our animals. And we strongly believe in sustainability.
We recommend that you purchase sufficient product for your project due to possible variations between batches. This is even more important with using the yarns from our own animals because alpaca fleeces will change with every shearing.
All of our products are made with love. Please handle with care!
