The alpaca in this skein is from one of our males named Rico Swabe. He is friendly and super soft. How did he get his name you ask? I was at Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool and my husband called to tell me we just had a cria born. I asked him, "what does he look like?" My husband replied, "like a q-tip, real furry, we should name him q-tip!" I said I was NOT going to name a son of Sebastian and one of my potential future herdsires q-tip. When I got home, I looked and said, OMG, he does look like a q-tip. So through word association, I came up with swab, then suave, then Rico Suave, and RICO SWABE was both fitting and funny enough!
This skein won FIRST PLACE at Burlington County Fair in 2018 and was on display here in the shop until I decided to list it!
It is a Sport/DK well balanced 2 ply yarn.
It is next to skin OH SO soft !
