Blue Sky Alpacas
Really Royal Alpaca
Cashmere for the alpaca girl
It’s not a secret that we’re not fond of going to the huge national trade shows swarming with too many people and already discovered yarns. But not everyone knows that we love going to the much smaller regional trade shows. One reason is we get to see all our friends from our favorite yarn companies. And on a recent jaunt to a regional New England trade show, we got to visit with one of our favorites, Linda from Blue Sky Alpacas (and our other friends in her entourage, of course!).
Well, when Linda dropped news of her plans for a special new ultra line of royal alpaca, you can imagine that Elise’s ears perked right up—she is our alpaca girl, remember. We couldn’t wait!
So when the boxes arrived yesterday, Elise, no big surprise, dropped everything (yes, she had a few other projects going) and started right up on a pair of wonderful to-die-for little gloves from the New Yorker-favorite, 705-Antique Black.
Kevin’s betting there’ll be both a right and left glove from this yarn, folks! (By the way, even he has to admit it’s every bit as soft as the best cashmere.) Nice work, Linda—you’ve outdone yourself with Limited Edition Royal!
