Northstar Alpacas Alpaca yarn giveaway!






There is something that stirs inside of me when I wake up in the morning in Autumn, and I open the door to a clear crisp morning and everything is touched with frost. Something about being able to go back into a snug, warm, little house and pick up some knitting just makes everything right with the world. It's especially perfect when I'm using deliciously soft yarn, such as this alpaca yarn from Northstar Alpacas!

Maple of Northstar Alpacas knits a lot too! She offers her beautiful handknits in her shop, and I think this makes gifting someone the gift of alpaca fiber even more simple! The hats with the horses on them! Oh my! Love!

If you would like to win this natural skein of super soft alpaca yarn from Northstar Alpacas, please visit her shop, find something you would like to own, and write about it in the comment section below. Extra entries awarded to those who use social platforms like pinterest, facebook, ravelry, google+, twitter etc to share!
