I just got this book and I LOVE it! For anyone out there who dyes yarn (or would like to start) this is a great book! Not only does it give you different ways to dye; it talks about different dyes, colours, and fibres and even has some patterns in the back. :)
So far I have only tried the 'simple hand painted method" but I tried the steaming method of heat setting which worked very well. If you like dyeing (warning: it becomes addictive!) then I suggest you get this book and while you're at it, we have some awesome white or light coloured yarns that you can dye. This time I dyed our white sock yarn and our cream lopi. Here's the results:
Adopt an Alpaca!
Our "Adopt-a-Paca" program is now available! You get to "adopt" one of our cute alpacas for 12 months and we'll do all the hard (and stinky) work!
Hopefully we've got all the bugs worked out of the system, but please let us know if something isn't working right. We've currently placed 9 of our cute alpaca friends in to be "adopted" but may look into expanding that if need be.
As the title suggests we do indeed have slipper socks again. We are now getting them from 'Shears to You' which only use quality Canadian Alpaca fibre in their socks, giving us a better quality product. They are now available in a wider range of colours, including the natural colours. The product is now in our online store - pictures will be up just as soon as I can get them taken!
Still in the planning stages, but coming soon, is our Adopt-a-Paca Program!!
This will give you the opportunity to "adopt" one of our sweet alpacas, which will help the farm in it's planning and growing stages.
Once you sponsor an alpaca, you will receive special pics, notes and cards from 'your' fuzzy new friend!
Watch for more updates on this exciting new feature......
