Best of Nature Collection Nature can be generous in unexpected ways... Misti Alpaca’s new Best of Nature yarn collection is one of these ways.
Using only natural dyes extracted from vegetable and mineral sources the Best of Nature yarns provides the exquisite colors that nature gives us day after day.
It is important to know that the color shades will vary from lot to lot. We get what Nature gives us, thus the shades will vary from season to season. For example the blue corn harvested in September will produce a slightly different shade than the blue corn harvested in October. However, the shade family will be the same.
Misti’s Peruvian partner Calicampo is a dye studio that extracts the natural dyes and immediately hand paints our wonderful Alpaca yarns. The end result is one of the most organic and environmentally responsible yarns available in the market. We have developed proprietary techniques of extracting the dyes and hand painting our yarns that results in a wonderful color palette and a hand paint effect that is truly unique.
Some of the most exciting features of Misti’s Best of Nature Worsted Alpaca collection are:
● All dyes are extracted from vegetable and natural sources ● Mordants used are also from natural sources and/or used in the lowest concentration possible well in accordance with International Organic standards ● The 100% Baby Alpaca yarn is the most organically produced natural fiber in the world ● All colors developed have passed color lightness tests conducted by independent testing companies ● The yarns are also hand painted in our partner dye studio, giving them the unique hand paint appearance
