Organic hand raised organic alpaca yarn from Alpacatrax
Alpacatrax is a family owned farm right here in the Hudson Valley With superb love and attention, they own their alpacas, and the alpacas they own are fabulous! Meet Hummer, (shown at right). Did you know that a particular lineage of an alpaca can affect the quality of the yarn in your hands? Well, it's true - and Hummer's lineage is undisputed. His offspring produce some of the lowest micron count alpaca fleece you can find. (lower = softer). Plus, we think he's darn cute. (So do his lady friends!) If you are round this way during the Dutchess county Sheep and Wool festival, you can meet the Alpacatrax animasl and feel in person why this yarn is so lovely. You can read more about the yarn and the Alpacatrax family here! Alpacatrax Farm.
