Hand Dyed Baby Alpaca and Silk blend sock/fingering yarn that is as soft and snuggly as a newborn baby! A wonderful yarn for scarves, cowls, shawls, and wraps for yourself or for a special gift. The silk lends a sheen to this alpaca blend yarn and the colors are bright and rich. Whether you are looking for a tonal, variegated or speckled colorway, this yarn will show off the colors. This is one of those yarns you just cannot help but touch as it feels awesome! Many people stopped to "pet" the yarn at the last fiber festival we attended.

I do my very best to make sure there will be no bleeding of colors, but some colors are prone to bleeding and you should always wash handcrafted items separately. Even though this is made of a superwash wool, it is still wool and needs tender loving care.
I also take care in trying to represent true colors in the photos of my hand dyed yarns, but different devices can display colors differently. If for some reason you are not satisfied, please let me know so we can work something out.
I am willing to dye made to order colors and can always create a specific order amount if you need more than I have in stock, so don't hesitate to contact me!
