The Critter Ranch and Giveaway!
Llama!!!! Who knew Llama could be so soft! Sue from The Critter Ranch sent in some of her uber-soft llama batts and yarn last month for all of us to taste. She included a small batt for me and I just got a chance to spin it up last night. Of course, after spinning it, I promptly went online and ordered some more!
It was very lofty, but had a bit more density than alpaca. The "Roses in the Dark" colorway she sent in are almost exactly our local college basketball colors (go Salukis!) so this yarn will most likely become part of a hat.
If you don't spin, you must try some of Sue's handspun! It is of course, luxuriously soft and it has the most amazing drapeyness to it.
Sue has generously offered a 1 oz batt of "Roses in the Dark" for you to try! Just visit The Critter Ranch, find something you like, and write about it below. The drawing will be on Saturday. Make sure you twitter/facebook/ravelate/blog about Sue's shop so you can get extra entires- because well, it's Llama!
Thank you so much, Sue. Not only are your fiber and yarns simply amazing, it is the little details in the packaging and care you take with everythning that has really endeared me to your shop.
