So, a month ago I told you all how I feel about knitting with alpaca yarn, and how I wasn't going to do it again. And then last week I signed up to Kickstart an alpaca mill. Why? You may well ask. Well, mainly because I believe in onshore processing of Australian fibres. I'd love to see something like this for sheep wool, but that wasn't what was being offered. So, around December I'll be getting six balls of alpaca yarn in three different colours. I foresee Leon's next winter set being in alpaca, either woven or knitted chevron stripes.
