This Upland blend captures the essence of New England farm yarn. I have combined a melange of fine and long wool from my flock with prime alpaca (the blanket of an alpaca fleece) from a nearby farm. This softly spun single is cozy yet lightweight. Subtle variations in dyes give depth and character to the rich colors.

See closeup color samples below.
