Handspun Alpaca with Wool, Silk etc.

Presented in skeins. They vary by colour, price (weight) and handle (strong / medium / fine). Strong yarns are ideal for rug making or tapestry. Medium handle yarns can be used in outer garments. Fine handle yarns can be worn next to the skin.

Handspun is ideal for your own special design which no-one else is likely to have. Each handspun skein is unique. The weight of each handspun skein varies and is priced accordingly. Weights, lengths and ply are approximate. All pieces are made by Jill Rowling unless otherwise specified.

Prices are in $AU and include 10% GST.
