Yearn Worthy Yarn: Ecolana

This week’s pick for an eco-friendly yarn is Ecolana by Aslan Trends. An animal fiber that is soft, warm and get’s me to thinking about the coming fall.

Ecolana is a 60% Alpaca 40% Merino Wool blend yarn that is produced with environmentally friendly production methods.

The yarn comes in 11 beautiful and natural colors where no chemicals or dyes were used to produce the different shades. All the colors and patterns of the selection of yarns comes from the various shades and natural colorings of the alpaca itself.

Check out the special “twisted” colors where various colors are carefully spun together for a two or three-toned effect that is quiet lovely, perfect for a warm sweater or snugly scarf.
