This listing is for one skein of our NEW "Feather yarn".

This beautiful 3-ply yarn was made by combining the hand shorn wool of our well loved woollies, with the precious locks of our friend's alpacas.

The result is a soft and lofty Dk weight yarn with a great stitch definition.

The blend consists of 60 % pure untreated wool from our Tingola sheep, a heritage breed from Francesco's home valley in the Dolomite Mountains, and 40 % alpaca fleece that give the yarn it's bouncy softness.

FOR THIS NEW EDITION, the wool has been combed {in addition to being carded}, which makes the yarn slightly smoother and shinier than the yarn we made two years ago.

All the fibres have been PROCESSED NATURALLY. No chemicals have been used at any stage.
The raw fiber was cleaned with water steam, and then carded, combed and spun by skilled artisans in a small local mill.
Afterwards I have hand wound the skeins and pre-washed them for you using nothing but a gentle organic plant-based detergent.
