NorthStar Alpacas White Alpaca roving giveaway!


We're giving away this stunning white alpaca roving from NorthStar Alpacas! You may not be able to read the label, but the alpaca is from Mercedes, Malachi and Kashmir- and pictured is Mercedes from Buck's Meadow.

This stuff is dreamy soft and the color is a shade whiter than the normal "cream" white alpaca you usually see. This is 4 whole ounces for you to play with- yay!!

I am going to ask you to do something really hard! Find one thing in Maple's NorthStar Alpacas shop that you really love, and write about it in the comments section below. You'll be entered to win this beautiful roving! You can gain extra entries by plurking/tweeting/facebooking/blogging this giveaway and giving a social media shoutout for NorthStarAlpacas!

That's really hard? Everyone's great at Northstar Alpaca's site. But if I had to pick, it would be the green & brown roving. Lovely colors!

I love the undyed rovings (though I'm not sure whether grey or brown or white is best) - they just scream "unlimited potential" to me, which is delightful.
