80% Prime Alpaca, 10% Bamboo, and 10% Camel
2oz - $10.00
Color: 2011 AOLLC's Spring Garden

Alpacas: This is a blend of Panta Rhei and Jasper

Oh my what can I say about this roving. It is luscious, dreamy, soft, and just spins like a dream. I spun up the sample with a drop spindle in no time at all. It is so much fun to come up with new and different color schemes and this one more so than many. I was really pleased after seeing the final pin drafted roving. It truly reminds me of a beautiful garden. The colors are various shades of pinky/purple, yellow gold, various greens and some natural white. Photos just did not do it justice. Hopefully the spun up sample shows how pretty this will be.

Alpaca from AOLLC's Farm, GC from CT Farm
The Prime Alpaca was from a combo of our animals here on the farm in CT. We then blended with honey silk for sheen and camel for softness and 25% Gulf Coast so it would be a great all around fiber for sweaters, scarves, or whatever the fiber tells you.

 70% Prime Alpaca, 10% Sparkle and 20% Camel - oh la la
2oz - $10.00
Color: 2011 Maple Leaf

Alpaca: Prime Alpaca Fiber is from Jewel. Jewel is a medium fawn and I absolutely love to over dye her fiber.

This has become one of my favorite color schemes and it came about from walking in the field last year when the leaves were so beautiful in rich reds, burgundy, and a hint of orange. It is luscious, dreamy, soft, and just spins like a dream. I spun up the sample with a drop spindle in no time at all. I think this would make an absolutely gorgeous scarf. Rich in color and the sparkle just adds a bit of class.

 Techniques:  Coming up with new and different roving blends and color schemes has become one of my favorite things to do. In 2010 I let nature be my inspiration and here are pictures of some of the roving. In continuing with nature theme, We utilize Greener Shades Dye. Greener Shades Dye is Heavy Metal free which means it is better for the environment and safer for you. We are an approved distributor for Greener Shades Dye so ask us we would be delighted to help you. Our roving is also listed on Etsy.
