Yarn

Each skein of yarn is carded, spun, and plied by Heather Hutchison, a fiber and textile artisan. She lives and works in the rural foothills of Northern California. Heather owns and tends to a small herd of alpacas. She also has sheep, goats, poultry, and prize-winning Cardigan Welsh Corgis. All animals at her ranch are loved and pampered.

  • Yarn spun from alpaca fleece is strong, light-weight, soft, and warm. It wicks away water and is naturally fire-resistant.
  • Huacaya is the most common type of alpaca. Its fleece is crimpy and elastic. It is especially well-suited for knitting.
  • Alpaca yarn takes dye well, though these skeins are undyed with only natural color.
  • Skeins described as ‘Farm Blend’ are spun from mill roving from four different animals.
  • Cria fleece fibers are usually a bit shorter than those from adult alpacas. Otherwise, they have the same qualities as fiber from adults.
