We are pleased to offer Lexington Woolies a range of alpaca yarn in natural colours sourced from the farm. Lexington Woolies is sourced from an alpaca farm in southern Tasmania - named Lexington. The owners are are local farmers who prioritise providing a brand with ethically sourced wool and superior fibre quality. They do this by being a part of the whole farm to yard production process and ensuring responsible, sustainable practices in animal welfare and land management.
Alpaca fleece varies in quality depending on the climate, animal management and the genetics of the Alpaca. The Tasmanian climate is unlike any other state in Australia, therefore with their superior breeding program and climate, the Lexington product is unique to the farm. Each shade of fleece is from a particular grouping of alpaca's and the meterage and shades vary slightly.
We advise that you purchase the amount you need for your project, as we can not guarantee that the shade will be repeated the following year.
The yarn is spun as an 8ply/DK weight and knits on a 4.00mm needle. As all knitters vary in tension, please do a tension swatch.
