Alpaca!




I must admit I am partial to alpaca.  I love the softness, the ease of spinning, and they are just too darned cute. If I was 25 years younger, I might even want to own a couple.

Several of the members in our SparkleSpin group are Alpaca farmers, one of which is Lisa of Maranatha Alpaca Farm.  Lisa sent me this beautifully soft and lofty roving.  I have decided to dye it Red Vermillion to use in a shawl for one of my aunts.  I had decided to gradually spin and weave a shawl or stole for each of the female members of my family.  So far I have finished 2 of them for a couple of my nieces who recently graduated from college.  If you want to do something similar or would like to arrange a farm tour so you can see these adorable animals, contact Lisa at Maranath Alpaca Farm.
