While these soft friends are agreeable to being made in any yarn that will felt, they are extra special made in alpaca, their own fiber.

Yarn: Choose a yarn that will felt easily and firmly. Any weight of yarn may be used, or use 2 or 3 strands together for larger animals. Using multiple strands in different shades can give your animal a more natural looking coat.

Yardage: Worsted weight: 165 yards main color and 15 yards black.

Bulky weight: 185 yards main color and 20 yards black.

Note: If using multiple strands you will need this yardage for each strand used.
