Covet is our luxurious, custom-spun DK weight California yarn made with 60% Rambouillet wool from Double R Farms in Marysville, CA, 25% Huacaya alpaca from Alpacas of Marin in Nicacio, CA and 15% silk. It has a lovely hand feel, with some variation that lends a little rustic quality in appearance.
We had the Rambouillet wool blended with black and gray Huacaya alpaca to create a lovely, heathered naturally gray yarn that we then over-dye. The colors that are listed "over gray" are dyed on this naturally gray Covet base as opposed to the white Covet base.
Double R Farms consistently raises award-winning Rambouillet ewes and rams on their ranch in Marysville, CA and won Supreme Ram at the 2017 Mendocino Co. Fair.
