North Star Alpacas Yarn Giveaway!





How about some bright and cheerfully sunny yarn from NorthStar Alpacas to lighten the day?! Maple dyed some beautiful yellow yarn with looong color repeats for December's box, and her yarn is so very soft! Alpaca + Merino = heaven!

Maple is contributing to January as well! Just about anything in her shop would be ripe for the "Luxe" box, but I am especially loving the angora handspun. Yum!

For a chance to win this beautiful yarn, please visit North Star Alpacas, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Extra entries are awarded for those of you who update their social networking: twitter/facebook/plurk/pinterest to help spread the word!

I love so much stuff in that store! I especially like that they have taken the time to include information about the individual alpaca whose fleece is in each product. Joe's chestnut roving is beautiful and I am tempted to snap it up to try my hand at spinning alpaca!

Becca said...

The purple, teal, and emerald alpaca and merino is really lovely, those are my favorite colors.

CinderLisa said...

I love the purple and blue Double Bulky handspun. So squishy looking!

Melrose said...

I am really tempted to break my resolution for the green alpaca sock blend!

Melissa said...

Not usually one for sparkly-bits, but Cranberry Bog is such a cute colorway. Hodgepodge is also nicely unusual... and like others, I *love* the personal notes on all of the yarn, who made it and whose fiber it is!

Deb at Merciful Hearts Farm said...

Love the color of the Farm Grown yarn.

lorraine said...

the yellow alpaca merino fingering :)

Stacey Bieberstein said...

The periwinkle blue baby alpaca yarn is amazing!

Betsy said...

The baby alpaca in chartreuse is to die for, the perfect color for spring knitting!

beepb said...

Alpaca. Silk. Handspun. You had me at silk. The gorgeous periwinkle-y color makes me want it even more for a simple, airy summer scarf (double-knot stitch, perhaps)?

Jessica said...

Really love the handspun hand dyed alpaca in the blue grey colorway. But do I have to choose just one? And the pics of the alpacas with their skinny necks are too cute!

Stacy said...

I love her fiber and the socks that she often has, but my current favorite item is the "Gray Alpaca/Merino Top."
