Sport W.eight -- Most of our luscious baby alpaca fiber was made into 2-play sport-weight yarn, and it is blended with 20 percent Tussah silk. Yum! This yarn is great for scarves, shawls, hats, baby items (see baby sweater below), socks and any other project where a lightweight, soft, drapey effect is desired. This is a fine premium yarn, and the silk adds moreP1040451.jpg luster (shine), as well as a little bit of a slick or slippery feel. We have natural colors including white, browns and fawns, and the dyeing, which is a never-ending project, has produced a veritable rainbow of beautiful colors to share with you, as well. The sport-weight yarns are approximately 100 grams and 200 yards per skein.

Worsted Weight -- We have added some worsted-weight yarn to our offerings this year. The worsteds are available in white and light fawn and will also soon be available in dyed colors, as well. This is also a very high-quality yarn blended with 20 percent silk, and it can be used for projects where you want a little more weight: vests, leg warmers, hats, mittens and throws. The worsted-weight yarns are approximately 125 grams and 150 yards per skein.

Lace Weight to Chunky -- We stock a variety of alpaca yarns from companies such as Plymouth Yarn, Classic Elite Yarn, Misti Alpaca an others. We carry lovely lace-weight yarns, DK, worsted on up through the chunky lines, available in many colors, designs and blends. These are available at our farm store.

Clothing, AcRuana-from-Peruvian-Link.jpgcessories, Throws, Rugs -- One day we may make inventory available through our website, but for now, shop at our farm store (and say hello to the alpacas while you're here). In addition to beautiful yarn, we have ruanas (see photo at right), capes, sweaters, scarves, shawls, gloves, mittens, socks, hats, throws, rugs, baby items, stuffed toys and the ever-popular finger puppets -- all made from alpaca, of course. It's a fun place to shop for gifts and to treat yourself, too.

Ordering -- Until we get our online store set up, we will accept telephone or email orders for our Snow Diamond Alpaca yarn. Give us a call or send an email letting us know how many skeins you want, as well as what color and what weight. You can pay by credit card, and we'll mail the yarn to you on the next business day.
