This soft yarn started out as raw alpaca fleece from a small Nova Scotia producer that I processed from raw: picked, washed, dyed orange, combed then blended with a small amount of firestar. It was spun into a 2-ply, before being dyed brilliant blue leaving some orange to peek through. I decided to finish this yarn by re-spining it in the opposite direction to merino top that I also hand-dyed. The resulting yarn is a variation of a crepe yarn, since 2 plies are wrapping around one. It’s one of my fave ways to ply yarn, giving it lots of interest and fun to the design.
