Bulky Alpaca

I loved the light weight alpaca I got at a lys and the lovely results from dyeing. I thought a bulky alpaca would be great for winter, soft, light and warm. So I found some bulky alpaca yarn and pulled out the dye pot and here are the beautiful results. I call this first one Jewels of the Sea, very saturated colors in lovely jewel tones.
This next one is Deep in the Night. During the dyeing process, the yarn absorbed so much dye, I wrote it off as a failure. To my surprise, after it was dried, you can see the subtle gradations of color, still dark but in a mysterious way. Deep dark and rich.
p.s. these yarns are for sale.
