This single yarn (one strand) of alpaca fibres is very soft and perfect for fluffy knitting and crochet work.
After the shearing, the wool fibres are sorted, gently cleaned and carded.
We, at mon petit rouet, soak the yarn after spinning just in warm water (without additives) to fix the twist and to let the fibres relax and loosen up.
So that the yarn stays so wonderfully fluffy and voluminous, each skein is wrapped by hand – so that it can wait quite “relaxed” for its further transformation.
