Southern Alpacas Samples!

Here is a real treat from Southern Alpacas! What vibrant colours - and perfectly named to match the colours of a summer garden: Lovely Lavender, Sunburst of Poppies, and Pretty Pentstemons. These hanks are hand-dyed 2 ply yarns – which are incredibly fine, and they go a long way.

They have clean raw fibre in a dozen natural shades, and washed and carded slivers of pure alpaca fibre, in natural colours. They also blend natural coloured alpaca with hand-dyed silk for luxurious blends in fabulous bright colours. This year the range is luscious and almost edible – raspberry, bananaberry, apricot swirl, blackberry, black spice, and lavender.
