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)
