Yarn – Cherry Root


Kirstin here! Happy Earth Day! I’ve just gotten back from travelling for work, but there’s nothing like a bit of spinning to make you feel grounded and present. I had the weekend to get back to my crafting. Here’s what I got up to:

Yarn - Cherry Root Close Yarn - Cherry Root Full

I really, really like how the twist came out in this yarn. Nailed it, if I do say so myself. It’s a lovely worsted/medium weight, my go-to weight for the vast majority of my crochet projects. The roving is 90% alpaca, blended with 10% bamboo silk, and it has a lovely, rich color.

The alpaca fiber comes from Cherry, who belongs to our shearer. Last year, he gave us a bunch of fleeces from his own animals, and I’m making sure I’ve spun up a healthy skein or two from each to give back to him. Also, since shearing day is on the way, I’m somewhat frantically trying to empty the fiber closet!

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
