Fiber Content:
100% Superfine Alpaca, spun in Peru.

**Description:** All colors are naturally occurring—no dyes have been used. Known as “the heavenly fiber” because it’s grown between the altitudes of 13,000 and 16,000 feet.

Note: This yarn is considered a ‘light worsted’ weight yarn - slightly heavier than DK.

Information from The Village Spinning & Weaving Shop website:

“Superfine Peruvian Tweed Alpaca Light worsted weight Yarn spun in Peru. Supplied in 8 oz.± hanks. Approximately 1200 yards per lb. (that’s about 600 yards per skein)

All colors are naturally occurring - no dyes are added. “Peruvian Tweed” is a three-ply yarn… two softer twist plies plus one ply of a tighter twist that secures everything and helps give it an irregular look.
