It's Finally Here!!

As most of you know, I've been working hard to get our Alpaca herd to the point where I can finally sell the fiber. The monumental occasion is finally here and I wanted to share my daughter Rachel's blog post with you all. I shamelessly copied and pasted her article here :)

Handspun Organic Alpaca Yarn

My parents have a wonderful little place in the mountains called Kuwili Windmill Alpaca Farm (which translates to "The Dancing Windmill").

My Mum has some absolutely luscious handspun yarn available for sale, which I told her I'd list in my Etsy Shop for her. There are several Cafe Latte skeins of yarn from Alice in a sport weight yarn (click here),

as well as some extra-high quality yarn from Einstein, also hand spun into a sport weight (click here).

I can firmly attest that this would make an awesome gift for a knitter or crocheter, and you'd only need one skein to make a scarf (each skein is about 190 grams). Alpaca isn't like wool, which can often be scratchy. Rather, alpaca yarn is light and airy but wonderfully soft.

Sighhhh, I have a skein sitting on my dresser, and every time I pass it I have to stop and pet it.

For that matter, just buy a skein for anyone knitter or non-knitter and they can use it as an all-natural stress reducer. Just think of the money you'd be saving on therapy!
