North Star Alpacas Yarn Giveaway!
Maple of NorthStarAlpacas has just broght home several pounds of her babies fleeces from the mill. There they were processed into the most beautiful rovings and yarn!
If you have had a chance to sample a bit of NorthStarAlpacas, you will know the quality is unmatched. Everything she has is so soft and smells so delicious! Maple includes a sweet smelling herbal sachet in with every order.
Have you spun alpaca yet? It is truly dreamy! One thing I really appreciate about many of Maple's goods, is that she has the mill blend her alpaca with super soft merino. It has the same softness that you can expect from pure alpaca, but it will also lend a bit more memory to your knitting. You see how clever Maple is? You can learn more about life with the 'pacas at her delightful blog here: http://www.northstaralpacas.blogspot.com
I am really excited to see that Maple has put together some spinning samplers in her shop! Now you can test out all of the different colors she has! What a great way to try before committing to buying pounds (which is what you will want to do) of one color/blend.
We're giving away 2 skeins of luscious millspun Alpaca and Merino yarn! At 250 yards each, this will be enough to really make a project out of. It is also white, you could dye it (but don't tell me about it, because it is too beautiful now!). We'll be drawing for a name on Saturday. Just visit NorthStarAlpacas, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. Be sure and twitter, facebook, ravelate, blog or plurk about this contest as I will count your efforts as second entries (just let me know you did it).
Maple, thank you so much for being tireless and taking care of these beautiful and gentle fiber creatures. We really enjoy using their fluff!
