NorthStar Alpacas Fiber Giveaway!


A new day, a new month, a new way to enjoy NorthstarAlpacas fiber! Batts! Maple claims to have fallen back in love with her drum carder- which means delicious fluffy batts for us!

Featured in today's giveaway is Gunny, the handsome gunmetal-gray alpaca! 4 1 oz batts will make a lovely project for winter! Included in each purchase you make at NorthstarAlpacas is the most delicious smelling sachet ever. It's the little things like this that keep me coming back as a customer!

Please visit NorthstarAlpacas 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- so remember to FB and twitter update to gain extra entries.

The red and black Alpaca and Silk Handspun Yarn is absolutely gorgeous!

Charles said...

Fell in love with some blue Alpaca/Merino blend. Then of course, Alpaca is always worth spinning, knitting, or just holding.

Inspiration Fibers said...

The switchback cowl! Oh that looks so yummy and wonderful to wrap around my neck!

Kim said...

I really like the Hand dyed Hand spun Hand knit Alpaca Stretchy Hat

I adore the colors in the plum and teal roving, they work so well together! Really gorgeous!

I like the Beautiful Dark Gray Washed Alpaca Fleece from Gunny. :)

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I love the Wool Alpaca FireStar Batts - 2.6 ounces, reminds me of a very cool neapolitan

Magan said...

All of Maple's alpaca is amazing- I have fleece, roving, and batts and they are all delectible. Right now I'm drooling over the Alpaca/Angora/Silk batts on page 2 and wondering if they are all still available...

A Rose said...

Oh, I love Maple's fibers. I wouldn't mind trying her baby alpaca and bamboo roving.

Rachael said...

Oh I so love the handcarded batts- the Gallant batt is beautiful!

Xiane said...

I just want to touch the white alpaca/bamboo roving. I don't even need to spin it [right away, anyway] - I just want to feel how soft it is, because I *know* it is baby-soft!

Angie S. said...

The Many Mixed Fibers - Roving is really great. That would be a lot of fun to spin!

I love the Hand dyed Hand spun Green Alpaca Yarn. It's a lovely color, and I love the way the two kinds of alpaca combine to make the yarn.

SJS said...

Hee-hee! Markston is so cute! I would love to spin some of his dark chocolate brown fleece! My other favorite is the salmon and blue sky alpaca roving with its delicate mix of colors.

Paulette said...

I love all of the colors of the swirl roving, but my favorite is the "Woodland Stream". The colors are so calming and lovely.

Misskatydid on Ravelry said...

I am loving the hand carded alpaca batt in the Gallant colorway! So pretty!

Zombie Queen said...

the baby alpaca roving looks like it feels divinely soft! :)

Galia Lael said...

I'm having a difficult time choosing from Maple's shop. Everything is absolutely lovely! I would love to try a raw fleece.

Melrose said...

I seriously love everything I've ever gotten from Maple! Right now the plum and teal roving has caught my eye. Maybe after xmas I can treat myself :)

butterflyears said...

The alpaca-merino blend! I've used it before and it is such a great combination! I'd like to try Maple's!

Jan L said...

Oh, the Three Way Swirl that is December's PF contribution looks really pretty. I love all of Maple's alpaca rovings and have spun several of them.

sherry said...

Beautiful, luscious stuff!

And, you can never go wrong with 'grey'...seems that is my 'neutral' color. Happy that she has 'rediscovered' her BattMachine, as its so fun to work and spin from.

Perrin said...

the mother daughter batt will make wonderful yarn

Kat said...

Already a favorite of mine!!! The Alpaca Batts from October Phat Box are on my list of to gets.

Hillside said...

Love the forest green alpaca roving - so soft

Tommie said...

For me it's going to have to be Brown Alpaca Fleece from Orion. Let's see, I'm a sucker for the undyed, natural fiber colors especially the browns; I'm a sucker for Alpaca fleece; and I love star gazing (like the constellation Orion). So, yeah, I think Brown Alpaca Fleece from Orion is my fave :-)

Gina said...

Ummmmm, yummy stuff! Loved the alpaca swirl plum, and the cotton candy! And the batts!

Laurel said...

The HandCarded Alpaca Batts in Gallant is calling my name!

laceykristina said...

I love the "Wool Alpaca FireStar Batts - 2.6 ounces" Usually I'm not much for pink or brown, but these are just gorgeous!

Natalie Servant said...

I love the hats! So simple and stylish. Definitely want to get my hands on the Alpaca Hat with the white and periwinkle blue.

Turtle said...

it's alpaca.... how can i pick just one!

Melanie said...

I love the Oct. Phatt batt. I wasn't able to get a box that month so I haven't seen it but I love the light grey with a hint of pink and purple. Love it

SovereignCrux said...

I have to say that alpaca is one of my absolute favorite fibers to work with, and her selection is quite lovely! To be a bit cheeky, however, I have chosen Crimpy White Alpaca Fleece simply because she puts a picture of the alpaca itself rather than the roving.. So it looks like she's selling alpaca animals in her shop -- which makes me giggle.

I like both the Woodland Stream roving and the October Phat Batt colorway. Would love one of those alpacas that are pictured, but don't think the "whole package" was really for sale:)
