Dyed Raw Alpaca Evolves....

Do you remember a few months ago when I was dyeing the raw white alpaca fiber? Look here ↑ what it has become. Beautiful yarn, handspun by Carrie. To get a description of how she produced this lovely stuff, take a look at her shop, TemptressYarn
Carrie, a certified fiber art fanatic, mother of two wee ones, lives at Long Island, New York, and creates a multitude of lovely products from hand spun yarn to hand made cards. She crochets, she dyes, she spins, she does it all.

Granddaughter Meredith made some yarn and pot holders and listed them in my Etsy store today. Can you guess? Yep, Carrie, from above, bought her yarn, and friend Collette of Epicurus bought three pot holders. You really must visit the shops of these two who are kind enough to encourage a budding 8 year old future fiber addict.
