North Star Alpacas Tribute Yarn giveaway!





I love LOVE Northstar Alpacas. Maple and her lovely fiber animals have been contributing to the Phat Fiber experience since darn near the very beginning. I feel like I know the animals on Maple's small Michigan farm through the photo cards of them with every item she creates. I think Tribute the Alpaca is my favorite. His picture is so proud and floofy and his fiber is just sooo soft and yummy!

We're giving away this beautiful, amazing, gorgeous 75% Alpaca 25% Merino Tribute yarn today. It's 250 yards of lofty worsted weight bliss, I tell you. Please visit NorthStarAlpacas today, find something you love, write about it in the comments section below and you'll be entered to win this beautiful yarn. I will award extra entries to those who twitter/facebook about this as well.

I like the Brown and White Swirl roving, makes me think of hot chocolate

ohdessa said...

The Brown Alpaca Merino Handspun looks lovely to knit with.

Melrose said...

I love everything from Maple and her fiber friends! I am seriously considering the Layers in Luxury batts and maybe some of Sparty's fleece in Grape!

elendir said...

My "Maple stash" is too big to allow me to buy more, but these batts: 'Layers of Luxury - Alpaca and Angora Batts from midMichigan' surely do make it hard (as everything in her shop)

Posted on FB as well

The Layers of Luxury batts looks tempting. Judging from everything else I've bought from North Star Alpacas, they will be at least as nice in person.

Erin said...

Ooh, I love the brown and white swirl 100% alpaca roving. Gorgeous!

Gina said...

I love Sparty's fleece in Grape and Target's fleece that has been dyed RosySalmon.

I am also really taken with the Layers of Luxury batts.

Clarissa said...

I love all of the alpaca fleece. I'd like to try some of Tom's fleece.

Dovile said...

I like the Alpaca - Merino HomeGrown White Yarn the best.

Marlitharn said...

Mmmm, alpaca. The brown alpaca merino looks so cozy!

Alpaca Granny said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments, friends, and for your kind words, Jessie. I think your camera might be a little off though. Tribute's yarn is gray ☺

Stacy said...

Ooh, the "Grape HandDyed Alpaca Fleece from Sparty - 4 ounces" is a wonderful color. I'd have to learn to process it first, though! New hobby, anyone?

There was 3 that I really like:
Carnival Baby alpaca-220 yds
HandDyed HomeGrown Alpaca Yarn-250 yds-Homestead
Handspun Brown Alpaca yarn-324 yds
(it's the medium fawn brown with the gold color in it).

Not to be too girly here, but the Prom Pink 100 percent Baby Alpaca HandDyed Yarn is pretty amazing.

bekknitsandco said...

The handdyed handspun Green Alpaca yarn is beautiful!

neilsnana said...

I love the black and tan handspun alpaca and the roving would be great to spin.

Jessica said...

The crew socks look pretty comfy, and the hand dyed handspun green alpaca is gorgeous!

Deb at Merciful Hearts Farm said...

The grape alpaca locks look like they will spin up into some gorgeous yarn!

Lindr said...

The Soft fawn homegrown alpaca yarn looks just divine. Squishy and soft - perfect for a snuggly cowl!

Em said...

The handwoven alpaca and silk scarf is stunning - such a perfect combination of detail and minimalism, and I bet it feels wonderful. There's a pink and white batt that I wouldn't object to having as well. Actually, I'll just take the whole inventory.

barbara143 on rav said...

i love the brown handspun, very pretty.

Liz said...

I love that orange and yellow handspun!

SJS said...

Aw, alpacas are so adorable!!! I love those dark, natural colors. My favorite is the chestnut brown roving, but I also like the natural black roving, too.

marsha said...

Really want both the white and the fawn raw fleece! Love the quality of her alpacas.

Karen said...

I was drawn to Sapphire and Plum Swirled Alpaca Roving. Love the colors!

cs said...

I love the sapphire and plum alpaca roving! I'd be getting it if I didn't have vet bills to pay. I also really like it when I know the name of the animal the fiber is coming from - I don't know why, just seems more personal, I guess!

kristen said...
