The shine on this yarn is AMAZING! One skein of this beautiful, soft, 2-ply Suri alpaca and Merino (70/30) yarn is enough to knit or crochet a scarf, cowl, or a hat -- maybe even a pair of fingerless gloves! It is from the fiber donated by Piper and was spun at Stonehedge Fiber Mill in E. Jordan, Michigan. Suri alpaca is naturally silky and soft; when blended with superfine merino, this yarn will drape nicely and have memory. Perfect for a sweater or other wearable. You will not be disappointed by whatever you make with this yarn!
