The beauty of undyed, naturally-colored alpaca (and its softness) combines into a heathery sport-weight yarn.
When those 3 undyed colors (H703, H704, and H705, all put up in 100g hanks) are then overdyed with Manos's kettle-dyed semi-solid colors, the results are 9 more rich, subtle tones (put up in 50g hanks).
