About Unusual Natural Yarns. . .


Recommended Posts

I don't spin but would be interested in purchasing some unusual natural fibers, since some in my family are very allergic. I used to use angora wool and wool, cannot do that anymroe. I've thought about alpaca yarn but I am not sure. Has anyone heard about allergic reactions to it? I've heard about people who spin dog and cat fleece. My sister is allergic to our cat, Lilly but not to our dogs Daisy and Cody, so, where do you get dog fleece that is spun into yarn?

Would it fall apart when crocheting it? :think


Thank you very much!

my mom is highly allerigic to wool (lanolin in the wool) and alpaca is fine for her, hope that helps..Alpaca is a mammal, so the hair or fleece or what ever is closer to human than wool
