Alpaca fiber news

 Our alpaca fiber from last year's shearing is here in all sorts of forms - roving, yarn and rugs!

Ok, to tell you the truth, the roving and yarn has been here for awhile.  It was neatly packaged in bags and corralled in a box.  We had some moments this weekend to take everything out and take stock.

The roving is a blend of dark brown, fawn and ivory.  It is just as lovely as the previous year's, but overall darker tones.  We look forward to getting the new roving listed on eBay and in the hands of our friends for spinning and felting projects.

We also have a whole pile of yarn!  The four skeins shown below have our usual ivory, dark brown and fawn.  The new color is a blend of dark brown and ivory for this very pretty mocha color.

These four options are all sport weight and really lovely together.

 The black and ivory options shown here are worsted weight.
Our rugs are a wide variety of patterns and color schemes.  We have a couple in the larger 3' x 5' size and several in the 2' x 3'.

If you are a fiber artist and need some alpaca yarn or if you want to gift some for the holidays, let us know.  We'll be restocking at The Wicked Stitch in Wamego soon.

The rugs are available.  Check with us early for the best selection of patterns.
