Yarn – Holiday Extravaganza


I love things that sparkle. I love soft things. Logically, sparkly, soft things are some of my favorite things. Which is, I suppose, how this yarn got invented.

Kirstin here, and I’m back in the swing of hand spinning with a yarn we call “Holiday Extravaganza”. It’s 100% alpaca, from Tuscany, plied with a gold embroidery thread. I’ve strung red, green and gold beads on the thread.

Tuscany has some of our softest fiber, so coming back to the wheel with a project like this one makes you wonder why you took such a long hiatus. It feels good to have found some inspiration and motivation to spin again.

Hopefully, I’ll have plenty of skeins of this spun up for our next show, the Ye Olde Yuletide Bazaar in Parker. This holiday bazaar is on November 9, from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Parker Fieldhouse. I’m planning on spinning some studded snows, another perennial favorite, as well.

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.
