… I guess maybe it’s the wrong time to be showing off this lovely neck-warmer ! As usual, this very stylish item is hand-knitted from our own alpaca fibre. It is 100% natural, with no dyes having been added.
Pat entered several items into the Fibre Festival and Craft classes at the British Alpaca Futurity, and we were very pleased indeed to win several awards ..
We were awarded Firsts for three skeins of hand-spun yarn :
Both of the skeins above are of undyed fibre; on the left fancy cabled yarn, and on the right, plain (black, and consequently very difficult to photograph). The one below is hand-dyed with natural products.
A close-up of the above yarn, which earned the comment from the judge “has retained its handle despite the dye on it”.
