This is soft (but not next to skin for some people with very sensitive skin) 2ply yarn that I spun from one of my dyed tops (baby alpaca with tussah silk). It is softly spun and plied yarn with nice sheen added by silk. It has no bounce at all. Will be nice for a shawl or a stole.
Please note that tape on the last photo shows only centimeters (on the left), no inches there.

Photos: I try to make my photo as close to the original yarn as possible, but please take into account that monitors settings can affect colors so there might be a difference between the real colors and how you see them on your computer.

Care: hand wash in cool water, do not leave in a detergent for too long, use only detergents designed specifically for wool and silk garments.

Dyes: I use professional acid dyes, but some discharge of color may occur during washing/soaking, especially if a colorway has very saturated colors.

My family don’t smoke and have no pets.

Thank you for taking interest in my creations!
