Northstar Alpacas fresh alpaca yarn giveaway!

I don't know about you, but when I'm having a rough day, I like to go squeeze yarn. It's very important to me to have a few (ok more than a few) skeins of luxurious, soft alpaca yarn such as this one from NorthstarAlpacas laying around.

Let's be honest with each other. When you see a beautifully hand-knit item, you want to touch it. If your hand lands on something soft and beautiful like farm-raised alpaca, it just adds to the whole experience and look of your finished piece. NorthstarAlpacas offers the materials you need to make something very special!

If you would like to enter to win this skein of farm-raised alpaca, please visit Northstar Alpacas today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. We'll count sharing on other social media as extra entries! Help spread the word!

So hard to pick!! But,Alpaca and Cormo Wool Roving for Spinning and Felting, Hand dyed Fuchsia and Purple Alpaca Wool Roving - 2.4 ounces / 65 grams is stunning!

I love just about everything Maple does! Her fiber was my "go to" for TdF. Right now I especially love the Brown Alpaca Roving Swirled around Rose Grey, the Alpaca/Bamboo/Angelina Beige Roving, and the Burgundy Roving. I have spun bits of each and all are a dream to spin!

I adore the natural colored alpaca rovings and blends. The one that I would order right this minute if I could would be the Charcoal Gray Suri and Huacaya Alpaca Blend Roving, which is beyond gorgeous and I want pounds of it to roll in. :)

I like the baby alpaca in denim blue. I like wearing the items I make using alpaca because they are so warm.

Gold Brown Alpaca and Cormo Wool Roving. I've been telling myself I need to expand my color choices beyond red, purple and blue. This golden brown would be perfect to break out of my rut.
