Pachamama's Alpacas

According to Inca legend, Pachamama was a sacred Earth spirit who gave the gift of alpacas to all mankind to keep them warm with their beautiful fleece.  In return, she expected mankind to take good care of them or she would take them away.  

My alpacas are shorn every Spring, and their carefully selected fiber is mill-processed into this special yarn.  Hand-picked, award winning, and locally sourced sheep fleeces are blended in to provide stability and spring to your fine hand knits. All come in their natural colors including white, light fawn, medium and dark fawn, reddish brown, and grey.
