Peruvian Tweed is composed of two soft-twist plies that are wrapped with a third, more tightly twisted ply. Two or three colors are used, giving it a ragg look. The color variation makes for an interesting visual texture when the yarn is woven or knitted. It can be combined with the evenspun Prime Alpaca for an interesting contrast. Like all alpacas, it is very warm for its weight.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
