The green carded batt is so pretty! I love spinning woolen, and I think it would make a wonderful pair of soft, fluffy mitts or a cowl.

Jenny said...

The alpaca plus carded batt is beautiful!

After exploring some of the items I really love this listing http://www.etsy.com/listing/110001306/cria-alpaca-fleece-golden-brown-from-mr
I was struck by the way they talk about their animals, and talk about the good energy in the fleece and the personal traits of their alpacas. You can tell they love what they do and love their animals!

I like the rustic look of the handspun brown alpaca and angora bunny yarn. Also, I imagine it's amazingly soft and squishy!

North Star Alpacas is one of my two go-to shops for fiber. I love them! Their customer service is amazing because the shop is run by such wonderful people.

Love the colors in the Suri/Huacaya handspund yarn (Salmon & Sky Blue). Rich and earthy. Not to mention beautiful.

Lately I've been looking more into natural colours for a stranded project. I'd love to spin up some of their 4 colours of alpaca rovings.

Silja Devine said...

Many hearts to the golden cria fiber

Rebekah Evelyn said...

But...but...I LOVE alpaca, how am I supposed to choose? I'll go with the hand dyed jade baby alpaca yarn. The only thing better than alpaca is baby alpaca.

Katy Moses said...

I like the blue overdyed Alpaca roving. Very pretty.

Elaine said...

I'm going to go with the fawn roving this time...but, a usual, my favorite thing about North Star Alpacas is the way Maple cares for her animals. I have recommended her fiber to many vegan and animal-conscious spinners for a long time because she clearly lives as a caretaker and companion to her beautiful alpacas.

I have just purchased a drop spindle & had my 1st lesson on a wheel & as you have guessed, I am a real novice. It would be so lovely to have some wonderful fibre to spin making my experience one of the best I could ever.
