Alpacas of the Heartland - Hand Painted Sport Weight

    Nothing feels better than a fiber from a well cared for alpaca!

    Alpaca has a great drape to make a very squishy and soft fabric.

    These hand painted skeins add some fun and unique colorways! 

    Some of our employees had taken a tour of this very cool alpaca farm in Fort Calhoun. They absolutely fell in love with the animals, the owner, and the wool! So of course we had to bring it into the store!
