Really, really delayed follow up


Do you all remember that funky yarn I spun, way before Christmas? It looked like this (because this is it):

It’s a two ply yarn. One of the singles has Tuscany’s lovely white fiber as a base, with just a touch of blue that I added as I spun. The other single is the same, only the base is Brittany’s strong black fiber. It was designed by the person who ordered it in August. Well, some time passed. Months, actually. Then, a few weeks before Christmas, we were able to deliver the finished product.

Mom knit both the hat and scarf, using my handspun and white baby alpaca boucle yarn. The white yarn has little curls and is soft, soft, soft. It brings out the white in the handspun, and keeps the whole ensemble from being too dark.

So, thanks Patty! You are rocking that look! Next time, you just need to be more insistent, and we’ll get it done faster.

About cliffhousealpacas

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.
