I like the Handspun Alpaca Yarn - 338 yards - Welcome Spring

The bulky brown alpaca/merino handspun is really calling to me. It just screams "I'm soft and warm and need to be knit into wonderful winter wear!"

I have never spun pure alpaca, so the "100 percent Alpaca Roving - Brown and White Swirl" looks lovely. Plus, I love natural striped roving.

On my wishlist today is the Hand dyed Alpaca and Silk Roving ... as well as pretty much all the other fiber in the shop!

I love the raw fleece...both suri and huacaya. I've spun up some of the black that was in the Phat box a few months ago, and it spun like a dream.

All of the roving looks so beautiful that I can't decide on one that looks best.

This yarn looks scrumptious. I just love spinning all of Maple's alpaca and am currently struck by the 3 way swirl in stock. Oh, wait, haven't I already bought some of that? No matter, can always use more!

I love Able's link http://www.etsy.com/listing/74020630/2011-alpaca-fleece-4-ounces-able - how Maple describes him as a 'gentle fiber boy' just kills me.
