Pure Love Alpaca
100% Undyed Alpaca
The purest, softest ball of love around. Pure Love is made from 100% family-raised, undyed alpaca fiber. Each skein brings together the beauty of an entire herd with the spectrum of natural alpaca colors variegated into a single skein. Both color combinations create natural striping, especially when using stockinette stitch.
Our fiber is raised and spun on a family farm in Washington State and each skein takes 1-2 hours to spin. Because alpaca is naturally free of lanolin and other oils, many find it to be hypoallergenic and no harsh chemicals are needed to process the fiber.
Our Night Sky colorway is only available in limited batches as black alpaca is the least common in the herd. Our stock is small but we replenish after the alpaca shearing each Spring!
