Source of fiber: United States, The alpaca comes from my farm and another farm in Union Bridge, Maryland. The Mohair is all my farm. The wool is locally sourced through my shearer and also comes from Maryland.

This is one of my newest designer yarns. The focus is through color and transitions of color. The purpose was to make a yarn lovely enough for shawl work, but also practical for those that like to make socks too! And, these would be all natural socks - the mohair content is intended to cover the need for added nylon. Hooray for mother nature!
