You’re probably not too surprised to learn that many knitters visit our shop. Some seek inspiration, searching for a new pattern to master. Most are on a mission for materials. Alpaca yarn is some of the finest a fiber artist can work with. It’s soft to touch and keeps you toasty while you work. And now, we offer a brand new collection: Alpaca Elegance.
Alpaca Elegance is a collection created by Green Mountain Spinnery. Located in Putney, VT, this mill is proud to offer “greenspun” yarns. Their product is processed with only vegetable based soaps and oils. They don’t use any chemicals to dye, bleach, mothproof, or remove chaff.
This collection is a DK-weight blend of 50% New England alpaca fiber and 50% fine wool. Each skein has about 180 yards of yarn. The suggested guage is 5 stitches per inch on US needles size 6.
You might use these skeins for a nice pair of fingerless mittens, a cozy hat, or an elegant scarf. Stop in to feel the yarn for yourself! Whether you have a pattern in mind or you’re just interested in adding to your stash, we can help you choose the right color and the right yardage for you.
