Description

At 8.7oz, this is one hefty yarn! Mighty in ply and soft in feel. To begin creating this yarn I plied alpaca together as a three ply (alpaca was processed by myself from raw: picked, washed, dyed, combed and blended with sparkly angelina fibers and bits of angora before spinning). Then the 3-ply was re-spun in the opposite direction to a multi-colored merino top that I also hand-dyed several colors. The resulting yarn is a variation of a crepe yarn, although a 4-ply and not the traditional 3-ply. It’s one of my fave ways to ply yarn, giving it lots of interest and fun to the design.

4ply; 8.7oz/248gr; approx. 294 yards; approx. 9 wpi

Handspun on my Lendrum & plied on my SpinOlution wheel.
