I'd like the Liz Batts! What a wonderful way to inspire a new generation in fiber arts.

Is there anything more wonderful than white alpaca fiber? I just love "Off White Alpaca Roving - 4 ounces - IronMan - May PhatFiber Box Contribution" from Maple... :)

YPhat Fiber turned me on to this shop a couple of months ago. I'm dreaming of the day that I am ready to start spinning then advance to carding my own as well. When that day comes I will get myself a fleece from NorthStar Alpacas. Love them!
Also, the Suri and Huacaya blue and tan spun yarn is beautiful!

I really like the mint chocolate! (which by the way is my ultimate weakness). But I don't see it in the shop. What I like from the shop is the Alpaca Roving - FireRed EmeraldGreen BurntOrange.

Ok I'm going to be the weirdo here and say my favorite is the orange slouch hat, because for one I love orange and I love hats, and for two I cant pick a favorite from the yarns and fibers theyre all so pretty :)

BeKKnits said...

That fiber is MINE! I just love mint chocolate chip anything. I also like the chocolate dipped cherries handspun yarn.

Mary Mac said...

I love all of her hand knit baby hats. Just to cute.

Luthvarian said...

I <3 North Star Alpacas. I had been eying the lovely mystery fleece for a while, but see now it is gone. Is that more Ironman, I see?

Lindr said...

Everything is so pretty! I'll choose the Hand spun Alpaca Angora Yarn - 150 yards. It looks like it would be beautiful to work with.

Sam said...

I love the Green Carded Batt for Spinning or Felting - Alpaca Merino Angora Silk Angelina - 2.8 ounces/80 grams.

Leora said...

I love everything at Maple's shop! She's one of my favorite phatties and I'd go broke if I didn't have more self control around her lovely alpaca fibers...
But if I had to choose, right now I'm really digging the Liz Batts, the batts carded up by her granddaughter. They're so pretty, my fave colors, and what a cool story!

SusanM said...

I love the blue & white alpaca roving, but Chocolate Chip Mint is my favorite flavor- how can I choose?!!

Quixotism said...

While the yarns are gorgeous, I absolutely adore the meta nature of the large alpaca hat made from alpaca yarn. I look silly in hats, but I would totally wear it.

Stacie said...

Yum, alpaca! I really like the 266 yards of dark brown laceweight handspun alpaca (whoa, that was a mouthful). I don't usually buy handspun yarn (since I spin myself), but it's just so pretty!

amchart said...

You know, just the plain white farm grown Alpaca Merino yarn looks purely lovely.

Turtle said...

the brown and white swirl! :)

Linda said...

The Liz Batts in green, blue, and grey are quite stunning!

Silja Devine said...

I also love the Liz batts!

Jessica Jo said...

Does telling you about my $100+ of loot from North Star Alpacas I got last month count for the giveaway. Maple is amazingly amazing. She accidentally forgot 4oz of my roving so when she shipped it she included an EXTRA 4OZ! She said she was going to include a little something to make up for it but I didn't think it would be a whole 4oz! Very sweet.

Camille said...

I love the alpaca roving that's mixed with merino, silk, bamboo, and angelina...I ordered some this month and might have to order some more because it is spinning up so beautifully!

Lora said...

I like the Red Overdyed Alpaca/Merino/Mohair Roving!
