“Pink”, she said archly.


A woman in a floor-length black dress looked over her bare shoulder, giving a stranger a come-hither half-smile. He drifted towards where she stood, still and silent in a swirl of people. “Who are you?” he asked. “Pink,” she said archly.

I spun this yarn yesterday evening, completely on a whim. It felt like it had a story, so in what is sure to be marketing’s least favorite name to date, I’m calling it: ‘ “Pink”, she said archly’.

Pink is my least favorite color. But the Archie’s grey suri tones it down. Silk and suri alpaca fiber make for very fine, lace weight yarn. It’s practically string.

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
