New Store Projects and New Yarn

Wow – hasn’t it been a long time since my last post!

Lots of things have been happening – the usual new yarns etc… but I wanted to share something with you that is unique to Sweet Yarns – our very own yarn!

Yep – you heard right! We have teamed up with a local Alpaca grower who sold us some of her lovely fleece which we promptly had spun into some luscious yarn. We call it:

Local-Paca

Local-Paca is an 8 ply pure, undyed alpaca yarn. Each ball contains between 100 and 115 metres of yarn. It is Huacaya alpaca and is VERY soft and warm.

We had some shop samples made up for you to try:

1. Calm Cowl – crochet

This one takes 4 balls and is a Free pattern from Ravelry:

2. Candle Flame Scarf – knit

For all you knitters out there! 🙂 This one takes 3 balls of Local-Paca and is also a FREE ravelry Pattern

We have just sent away another 5 kilos of fleece to be processed. It will be available in black, dark brown and cream – shortly before our Winter Season begins in March.

In the meantime, you can buy some Local-Paca online.
