Description

Hand dyed in small batches on our kitchen stove. Perfect for stockinette or more complicated patterns that will showcase the natural color variations that appear in hand dyed yarn. We have additional colors in our physical shop here in Maine, so if you’re looking for something specific, please do not hesitate to ask!

As our batches are very small, we do recommend that you purchase as much as you need. Once a color sells out, it’s out! We do try to match dye batches as much as possible but are not able to guarantee a perfect match. Made in Maine.

Our alpaca fiber is from our family farm in Cumberland, Maine. We shear our alpacas and sort and grade our fiber each May and then send it off to be cleaned, carded, and spun at a local mill in Southern Maine. We’re knitters, too, and we can say without a doubt that alpaca yarn is a dream to work with! We love our alpacas as much as our products and have selected the highest grade fiber for our yarn.

Cleaning instructions

Wool products will shrink when agitated in water. For best results, we highly recommend that you gently soak your alpaca products in cold water or a no-rinse wool soak. Roll it loosely in a towel to soak up the extra moisture (do not twist or wring dry). Once it is no longer soaking wet, reshape the garment and lay it flat to dry.
