NFP Yarn --- NFP’s State Flower’s summer weight yarn is a unique blend of fibers. This ultrafine 3-ply sport weight yarn is made with 50% Virginia-grown cotton and a 25/25 blend of less than 20 micron alpaca and wool. This luxurious yarn is fine enough to be work next to the most sensitive skin, offers the cool comfort of cotton, the “ooooh” of alpaca, and the bounce and memory of wool. Specs: Put up in 3.5oz / 250yd center-pull skeins; US Needle Size 3-5; Gauge 5.75-6.5 sts/inch.

Semi-precious bulky is a robust yarn that is ideally suited for quick knit outerwear, such as hats and scarves or a weekend sweater. It is surprisingly lightweight, so even jackets, coats and bulky sweaters will be cozy and warm rather than too heavy. The dyed colors work well together and with the natural base for Fair Isle knitting and multi-color weaving. Specs: Grade 4 (26-28.9 microns) 3-ply bulky weight; approx. 3.5 oz / 80 yards; 90% Alpaca / 10% Wool; Gauge 2.5-3.5 sts/inch; US Needles 9-13.

Why alpaca? Soft and hypoallergenic. Hollow fiber, light weight. Durable and soft to touch. Gives the best natural insulation, keeping you warm during winter but on your body heat during warmer seasons. Machine-washable. Stronger than wool, not as delicate as cashmere. Does not form balls or lose its shape. Does not wrinkle easily. Not attacked by moths. Does not have lanoline that retains dust and microscopic organic elements, garments remain clean, fresh, and healthier for longer than other fibers.

Care instructions: Dry clean is appropriate. Can also machine wash on gentle cycle: cold water well folded and fit in a wash bag, mild soap. No dryer, flat dry in shade, not in sun. Hand wash okay. Storage folded not on hangers.
