Cartref Alpaca

Such an exciting weekend… well Sunday anyway.  We went to visit these lovely ladies and their offspring, just outside Mold. Aren’t they cute?

Cartref Alapca (25)

As you can tell they have recently been sheared and soon, we hope to have the yarn in the shop.

The fleeces are being spun in Bodfari, so the overall ‘yarn’ miles is under 35 miles, now that is local yarn.  Making it a very environmentally friendly, local product.

With each alpaca being unique and the fleeces being spun separately, you know which alpaca the yarn is from and the shadings are all unique too.  Making the yarn ideal for hats, gloves and scarves as it is between aran and DK weight, with lengths of 70- 88m per 50g ball.

We have a few balls of Misty and Nina in the shop already and the rest will be along soon…
