Northstar Alpacas Giveaway and 1000th salebration!


We've been seeing a few of our phatties celebrate special milestones in their shops recently. I'm hoping we can all help Maple of NorthstarAlpacas reach her 1000th sale soon! I just swell with pride when I see our hard working phatties doing well!

Maple will be entering the 25 sales leading up to 1000 into a special giveaway for shop gift certificate and the 24 hours after her 1000th sale will be a special 50% off sale! It's really exciting!

Northstaralpacas
is also featured in the August "Africa" Phat Fiber box and we're giving away this luscious 100% swirled alpaca roving in gorgeous yellows and purples and natural white! Just visit Northstaralpacas, find something you love, and come back here and let us know about it so we can go look too. We'll be drawing this weekend so be sure and let everyone else know about this exciting event!

The mother/daughter alpaca roving is two shades of fawn alpaca swirled together. When I saw it I knew i needed some. The mother alpaca has the same name as my sister Celeste.

I love that it's MICHIGAN DAY on the PhatFiber blog!

I'm such a huge fan of Maple and her lovely creatures. And, actually, I currently have a big sack of gorgeous orange and red alpaca batts on their way to my house!

Looking through her shop, I'd have to say that I'm really lusting after a reserved order of baby alpaca, silk, and angora. Wow, could it get any more soft and luxurious?

Oooo! I love the mother/daughter alpaca roving, as well as the light fawn and brown swirl roving! I can almost feel it!

I loved the Mother/Daughter alpaca roving. The colors looked gorgeous together and I love the idea that the mother and daughter will be together forever. I also loved the alpaca roving that was dyed in teal, periwinkle, and fuschia.

I like the colorway being given away, it is a very different combination.

Southern Mystic said...

Ooooo! I love those pink, white and black batts! Gonna tweet about this, too, as southern_mystic.

Alison said...

I love the handcarded batts. The one with white, black, and a hint of red looks like a scrumptious dessert! Plus, I love that she shows pics of the alpaca that the fiber came from! So cute!

Galia Lael said...

Just yesterday I was thinking I want (need?) some baby alpaca fiber, and the Fleece from Hutch's first shear looks absolutely wonderful.
Happy 1000th sale, Maple!

Anne-Line said...

Loving the pink and black batts!

InJuneau said...

The Natural Black Alpaca Roving looks so luxurious!

elendir said...

I love Maple's shop, she always offers wonderful fiber - and I also love that she always credits the alpaca producing it :-)
It's incredibly hard to choose but today I choose the batts, she just started making them and they are gorgeous!

(Going to post on FB as well)

I love the swirled alpaca roving dyed in sky blue and emerald. I sure would like to give that a spin.

Alpaca Granny said...

Thank you so much, Jessie, for featuring me here. You popped up in my Google Alerts or I wouldn't have known.
Also, thank you, everyone, for all your kind words and allowing me to have a successful business that more than covers my "four legged" expenses. I am truly the most fortunate woman in the world.

jessecreations said...

I really like the red/white/black hand carded batts.

Carlin said...

My favorite is the white fleece with Jacquard dyes - Sky Blue, and Celeste's - Emerald. Beautiful!

Melrose said...

Love Maple's shop and her fiber! Such a nice touch to include a photo of the fibery animal friends with each order :)

Aside from the black alpaca that is on it's way to my home. . .I also like the cotton candy, fawn swirl, the alpaca/silk/angora. I love it all! Wish my spindles would twirl faster!

Jessica said...

I really like the all of the handspun yarn, the sky blue and emerald one is my favorite.

Diane said...

Oh, it's all so lovely! I think if I was going to buy any one item, it would be the light fawn baby alpaca seen here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/53560017/light-fawn-baby-alpaca-fleece-from-hutch

TuttleDB said...

OOOO
The handcarded batts: "The white is 80% alpaca from Target and 20% merino from McMurray's lambs. The black is 100% alpaca from Berringer, and the tiny bit of dyed red is also from Target". Gorgeous!

Kristen said...

I like the Alpaca - Merino White Yarn - 250 yards - Free Hat Pattern.

Stacy said...

The "Nike" colorway of the Alpaca/Merino Roving; it's such an unusual color combination.

Rachael said...

Wow I love the Handcarded batts with black, white and red!

DangAndBlast! said...

I like how they show the animals, not just their wool! So sweet :)

I like the pink-white-black hand-carded batts. So pretty.

There's a package from Northstar Alpacas on it's way to my mailbox. From one point of view, that means I should stay away from the shop and avoid my stash taking over my entire house. From another point of view, the fiber might end up being homesick, so a little more would be a good thing. Like the Woodland Pond?

All For Love Of Yarn! said...

I love the alpaca/merino roving in Nike - teal and orange. It would be a fun one to spin!

Anna B said...

I LOVE your fiber! I love the fiber from Pollux I got awhile back. I should get more once I have money to spare lol

ZombieCat said...

The Woodland Pond roving is calling my name, and the un-named blue and green, as well. I'm also about *this* close to buying her closeout Zotikos handspun! If it's still there when I get back from visiting the LYS that opened up, and I didn't find anything to buy there, then that yarn will be going into my cart.

butterflyears said...

I really LOVE the giveaway sample best because it has PURPLE!

Besides that, I love the dyed alpaca fiber in blues. The graduated colors would be beautiful when spun!

Angie S. said...

The brown and pink hand carded batts are gorgeous!

Turtle said...

woodland pond is gorgeous, but really...any alpaca, so soft! Happy 1000th to you!!

One Sheep said...

Hand dyed Alpaca/Merino Top/Roving - 2 ounces - Osiris is really pretty.

SJS said...

I would love to have fiber from Justine, Nick, and Orion. They're all so adorable! As of this comment, there are 998 sales; only two more to go! Happy 1000th sale!

What don't I love? I have quite a bit already in my stash, and I am going to go shopping now!

Very tempted by the baby alpaca and bamboo roving. I love soft fibers! Lots of pretty hand-dyed rovings and yarns too.

SovereignCrux said...

I wish I could afford handspun yarn. =\ Hers is so lovely and dyed in subtle tones.

I like the woodland pond roving! I still need to spin some alpaca

trh said...

Everything that Maple sells is wonderful and she's terrific about creating special listings for those who need more than is listed. If I ever get a little caught up on my spinning, I'm buying some of her hand dyed roving . . .

Magan said...

Congrats Maple!! Hutch's baby alpaca fleece is phenominal!
