Alpaca, Cormo and Silk Oh my!


This is my favorite blend that we produce here on the farm: Cormo from my flock of sheep and Alpaca from a friend’s farm, not too far from my house.  I know, I know I talk about it all the time but I am really proud of it!   I thought you might like to see it spun up….



As you can see it makes a fabulous textured yarn with lots of little silk slubs.   It is prepared as a roving so the silk noils a bit but that adds to the charm of the resulting yarn.  

Wanna spin your own?   You can find it here.
