Texas Alpaca Fiber- you know you want some!




17.5 micron Alpaca-- yup, that's the good stuff!!! Texas Alpaca Fiber has been in the Alpaca business for quite some time, but is just starting out on Etsy. This month, they sent in some lovely millspun alpaca yarn- I really really enjoy this stuff! It's uber soft with a slight halo- it would be perfect for a lacy shawl, but you all know I'm a shawl addict!!

I'm so pleased to be giving away this 2 oz of delicious light fawn super soft alpaca! I know you'll fall in love with this stuff when you get some!

Please visit Texas Alpaca Fiber today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week and would appreciate an extra social networking- facebook, plurk, twitter, ravelry that you can spare! We'll count those entries twice!

I spun my first alpaca last night and loved it! I'd go for that Princess Tiger Lily! I also love the alpaca yarn....it looks so soft, even in the picture!

I was taken with the beautiful natural browns and fawns. No dyes means no chemicals!

This shop was already on my list of favorite Etsy shops. When I went there to take a look now, I immediately added the Baby Alpaca Grey Roving to my list of favorite items.

I love the autumn breeze roving. Reminds me of October in Wisconsin. Miss this time of year.

Galia Lael said...

I never tried spinning 100% alpaca (I can't believe I just typed that). I love Princess Tiger Lily's color. The roving from her is absolutely gorgeous.

Galia Lael said...

Twitted too. @SpindleDesigns

PogKnits said...

You're right! I do know I want some! I've never played with raw alpaca fleece before, so i think Finale's First Fleece would be fun.

Michelle said...

Ooh, I like the black alpaca yarn. But I also like the idea of alpaca tweed, ooh and the alpaca/tencel. Too hard to decide!

SJS said...

Hee-hee! I've been giggling at the cuteness of all those alpaca photos with each item!

My favorite is Peaches 'n' Cream! I also like the brown blend roving!

The Bulky White Alpaca yarn and the Caribbean Streets alpaca roving is so beautiful...winter's only a few months away, and I may have to just start stocking up on my alpaca fibers...

I would absolutely love to spin the Grey Baby Alpaca Roving.

I've absolutely never worked with Alpaca fiber so this looks really cool. On Winesister, I found this Organic Flax Seed and Lavender Aromatherapy Eye Pillow and I really love it :) I love using these kinds of things to relax and it looks so cute too! :D

That "Remembering Spring" is just gorgeous!
