Alpaca Heather from our friends at Manos del Uruguay is a unique Alpaca/Wool blend yarn. It starts with different natural undyed colors. H703 Grey, H704 Beige, and H705 Toast are natural colors and come in 100 gram hanks. All other skeins are overdyed over these natural colors to create different heathers. These overdyed yarns are in 50 gram skeins and are also perfect for color work!
This yarn is beautiful and soft and perfect for your next project. As the alpaca is blended with wool, you get far more structure and stability than with a 100% alpaca yarn.
Alpaca Heather is considered a sport weight, but would easily work at a DK weight as well.
