Named for the beloved Scottish veterinarian James Herriot, this is one of the original yarns when Juniper Moon Farm first launched. Baby Alpaca is the softest fiber from an adult alpaca's fleece. You'll appreciate that softness both as you are knitting or crocheting and when you are wearing your new sweater. Imagine incredibly soft sweaters with elegant drape or warm caps and scarves. Herriot's earthtone or gently heathered colors lend to knitting or crocheting stripes, patterns and colorwork.
This 4-ply yarn has a weight between DK and Worsted so you'll want to make a swatch before knitting or crocheting your project and adjust the pattern accordingly.
