Hand-Spun Alpaca Yarn | Whiting Works


200 yards of 100% Alpaca, Naturally Dyed and Hand-Spun Yarn made in Standish, Maine by Lynn Whiting. Due to the handmade nature of this product, each is unique and one-of-a-kind.

Available Colors: Natural (a warm grey with brown and white flecks), Green (subtle green with indigo blue and gold flecks), Blue (a light indigo with gold and grey flecks). Skeins containing blue indigo may crock (rub off) while working with it. This is a result of dying in an indigo vat and is considered normal! Each skein contains 200 yards of yarn.

This item is located at the Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner. Additional item in photo: White cotton cable tote by Loveline Baskets, also available at the Center for Maine Craft.

Lynn Whiting raises alpacas on her family farm in Standish, Maine. The alpacas are sheared right there on the farm, and their fiber is then washed, naturally dyed,  and carded. Once prepared, she hand-spins the fiber on her spinning wheel. Every skein of yarn is hand-processed and made with love!
