Undyed Romney Alpaca Blend (70/30) heavy DK/light worsted weight yarn, 175 yards, 100 grams, raised and milled in Canada, small batch, rare breed
This amazing yarn was the result of a collaboration with That Darn Yarn Mill in Kamloops. We took three colours of Vancouver Island Romney wool (white, medium grey, and dark grey), blended each colour with Okanagan alpaca of the same colour, and then plied the three colours together to make a gorgeous marled yarn! We also made some of just white and just medium grey as well - so many beautiful choices!
The wool was sourced from Errington, BC, and was grown by three sheep. Ursula and Angela supplied the white, and Toblerone supplied both greys (from two different years of shearing).
I will be dyeing some of this yarn, so if you'd like pricing or a sweater's quantity dyed, please message me!
The swatch in the photos is 22 stitches over 4 inches on 4 mm needles. It's quite dense, so it will also be nice on 4.5 needles (my swatch came in at 18 sts to 4 inches). This yarn is somewhere between a heavier DK and a light worsted weight. I find this yarn fine next to my skin, and my husband, who has very sensitive skin, found it fine to wear against his neck once it was washed.
