The fleece of this cute alpaca was white as snow! Soft, natural alpaca fiber, hand-spun by an indigenous artisan on a traditional drop spindle in the highlands of Peru. Not only is this soft, luxurious yarn fabulous to work with, but it also provides income to artisans living in remote communities and helps keep craft traditions alive!
Fairly traded and all-natural.
All of our hand-spun yarn is unique: no two balls of yarn are alike, and once it's gone, it's gone!
