Alpaca yarn giveaway and sale!

Happy November!

In celebration of making it through October and the beautiful fall, we are doing two things...

1.  Giving away a small "sampling" of alpaca yarn.   When we receive our yarn back from the mill, we usually have smaller skeins that are the end of the run.  There isn't quite enough for a full skein, so the mill packages whatever is left into these cute mini skeins.  We like to give these away for people who want to sample working with alpaca fiber.

So, we are giving this set of three mini skeins!  These are all natural, no dyes.

If you want to be considered for the giveaway, leave a comment on the Facebook post or this blog post. Tell us what you plan to do with the yarn or make with it.  We will randomly draw someone on December 1.

2.  Offering a sale on all of our alpaca yarn that we have on hand (not any that we have in consignment locations).  Each skein is $15 (not $18-22.50 as usual) and tax is included. This is for the month of November only.

If you have anyone on your list who is a knitter or weaver, this is a great holiday gift idea!  I am really thinking a lot about the holidays because someone told me the countdown until Christmas.  I have forgotten the exact number of days, but I do remember the small sense of panic I felt.

I have a friend on my Christmas list who knits, and this would be perfect for her! Too bad I don't have that talent

I've never used alpaca yarn or even yarn with even a bit of alpaca in it. I'd knit a scarf or a shawl, depending on the total yardage.

I would gift it to my GPS me tee who loves fibers and focused her 4-h work on fibers projects!

I've never work with alpaca yarn before. If I have a chance to win the yarn I'd like to crochet a cowl. I think it would look nice with my light brown coat.

It depends on the yardage, but I'd probably make a colourwork hat or headband.

I would make use the three for some colorwork on an accessory, maybe fingerless mitts or a cute cloche.

I would love to use this yarn to make a cozy cowl or infinity scarf!
