Paca-Paints are 100% alpaca hand painted to beautiful multi-colored shades. Paca-Paints are the same weight as our Classic Alpaca. Each 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.
