Midwest Weavers Conference Yarn

The Shepherd’s Mill was honored to be asked to create a special yarn for the 2013 Midwest Weavers “Prairie Winds” Conference. Of course, we knew the yarn would have to be alpaca and were blessed to have the support of many Kansas alpaca producers. Some were able to contribute to the prototype, others have committed portions of their 2012 clip to keep stock flowing. The alpaca was blended with dyed fine merino to provide additional bounce and the wonderful colors of Kansas.

We are excited to present our “Prairie Winds” conference yarn and hope you will enjoy creating something special for the conference exhibit.

Golden Wheat represents the fields of Kansas Wheat ready for harvest but also the beauty of the tall grass prairie as it stands through the winter. To get the beautiful golden color, this yarn is 60% alpaca and 40% fine merino.

Summer Skies represents the ever-changing Kansas sky. From lazy floating clouds to the pure bright blue of a perfect summer day to the dark navy of summer storms; this yarn is 70% alpaca and 30% fine merino.

The yarn is 1500-1600 ypp and is available in a 300 yard skein or a 1 lb cone. We also have roving from each yarn available by the ounce for handspinners and felters.
