At Yarnsomniacs "Et al" means from a few members of the flock. These skeins are handspun to include a beautiful variety of natural-colours that ply together to create an adventure to craft with.
For example Phil Et al, means Phil's fleece was used for the main strand, and the other strands are composed with an assortment of fibres from the flock that will at times compliment or contrast with the main strand.
Each skein is one of a kind.
