Medium-Weight Farming Co-op Yarn

This popular 3 ply yarn is the result of alpaca co-oping at work. Many farms sort, skirt, and ship their fibre to a central mini-mill that creates a co-oped product for redistribution. These yarns are overdyed onto shades of medium fawn. This results in subtle and more muted tones and a more variegated overall hue. 

80% alpaca, 20% fine merino

Approximately 220 yards/100 gram skein

Do not put alpaca in hot water, agitate it, or dry in a dryer or on a heat source.

Soak in room temperature water with gentle detergent or shampoo for 30 minutes, rinse, gently squeeze away excess water, and lay flat to dry.

Wipe soiled area with a damp cloth free from soap, and allow it to air dry. Gently brush fur when dry and shake to fluff.
