Paca-Paints, previously known as Hand Paints by The Alpaca Yarn Company is 100% alpaca hand painted to beautiful multi-colored shades. Paca-Paints are the same weight as the Classic Alpaca. Each 3.5 ounce (100 gm) skein is approximately 220 yards. The gauge = 22 st / 4" (5.5 st/1") using US #6 (4.0mm) needles. The pictures really don't do justice to these beautiful colors.
