This product is currently unavailable for purchase.

  • Fiber Content: 100% Alpaca
  • Care: Hand Wash

Fine micron count alpaca fiber, prized for its softness, warmth and luster, is available in several natural colors. With both durability and low elasticity, this fiber can create a wide variety of yarns of superior drape and insulative capacity. It is sometimes said to be warmer than wool.

Note: Fiber ordered by the ounce may have its quantity adjusted before shipping to reflect its actual net weight.

      So very soft and easy to spin. I have spun lace weight yarn on a hand spindle with this fiber.

      Comments about false Fine Count Alpaca Top:

      Beautifully prepared alpaca top in roving form. spun well however it does have a tendency to slip past itself when spinning, so maybe not a great fiber to start with as a beginner but a wonderful product for anyone who wants to break out of wool.

        Comments about false Fine Count Alpaca Top:

        Spinning heaven! I'm spinning with a top whorl, featherweight spindle, aiming to get a fine 2ply lace, and the fibre just glides. No need to pre-draft - actually would rather not, as the top is very loose and the fibres just float away. I just separate a 6-8in piece, and spin away. The black is not actually black but a very dark chocolate - beautiful (just be aware that is not true black). I'm order a few ounces more of all colours!

        My first time spinning with alpaca. This stuff is lighter than air and so incredibly soft. My only complaint is that I overdrafted and it kept breaking. But that's my fault, not the fiber's. I loved it!
