North Star Alpacas Mixed fiber giveaway!

I just learned that Maple of North Star Alpacas is feeling a little under the weather. I thought I we could show her some bloggy love today! We're giving away this beautiful pair of mixed fiber batts created by Maple at her lovely Michigan farm.

NorthStarAlpacas has just about everything Alpaca you can imagine. Well, maybe not a 3 piece suit but, for us regular folk who enjoy wearing and working with the fiber, you should stop here first! Homegown! Michigan grown! We all love supporting small farms :)

Please visit North Star Alpacas today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Pinning, facebook, twitter, plurk updates will get you extra entries!

I love the variation in the blues in the emerald green/sky blue alpaca/merino yarn. Lovely! Of course, I admire a lot of Maple's yarns!

Not gonna lie, I love ALL of Maple's stuff. I've had my fair share of a variety of it, and I'm sure I'll continue to acquire it! Probably my favorite today is the brown and white swirled roving :)

Stacy said...

Ooh, I love the "Alpaca Roving - Suri and Huacaya - Green and Brown." It looks like mint chocolate chip ice cream!

oh Maple, hope you feel better really soon.... I love the alpaca, merino blend that is yellow and orange - so spring like - would love to use it in one of my weaving projects. (oh, heck, everything Maple lists is just gorgeous!)

Elaine said...

I love the natural color sampler set. I also love that Maple is so transparent about her sourcing for her fiber, and shares photos of her beautiful, well cared-for alpacas! (Her fiber always smells so good, too...she has magical sachets, I swear!)

It didn't have a unique name...

It looks so random. Makes me think of springtime :)

Sigh, Maple's shop makes me ache with longing. The natural alpaca roving is gorgeous, but today I think I would buy the Blue Overdyed Alpaca/Merino. Beautiful.

I love the rose grey roving, such a pretty colour.

Cat Ellen said...

Red Overdyed Alpaca - Merino is probably my favorite! :)

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I think the black alpaca roving that is listed in the shop would be great. Black goes with everything, right? So I could easily combine it with any of the North Star Apacas fiber that I already have :-)

BlueKittyMeow said...

The "batts for spinning", the purple ones? Gorgeous. They remind me of crocuses.
Pinned and tweeted.

Love the bats for spinning and felting, they didn't have a color way listed, but I would call it "lavender sunset" really pretty.
