Once you knit alpaca yarn, you will never want to knit anything else !
LondonDairy Alpaca Ranch sells yarn that comes directly from our own alpacas. Some of our yarn is 100% alpaca fiber and some is blended with 15%-20% bamboo to add streaks of color!
Alpacas are shorn one time per year using a professional shearing team using methods and equipment that do not hurt the alpacas. The fiber is then sorted and skirted. The best part is then sent to an excellent mill where it is washed, picked, carded, and spun into skeins. This process creates yarn that is beautiful and incredibly warm, breathable, soft, and durable.
100% alpaca from fiber grown at the ranch and processed in USA (100% made in the USA!)
Colored yarn is created here at the farm from white skeins that were dyed with common earth dyes.
Yarns with “streaky” colors have bamboo color enhancers.
“Special” yarns are from Peru.
