This is my favorite yarn! It was inspired by some yummy yarn that the incomparable Spazzyarn spun out of merino that was very similar. I fell in love with her hand spun merino Neopolitan and bought it last year.
I had not picked up knitting needles since I was in 7th grade. But her yarn inspired me to get fiber-y again. That and the fields of alpacas in the backyard…
I have to admit though, when I got the merino in my hands I was shocked at how un-soft it was. Let’s face it – I only knew alpaca. That was all I ever felt. And alpaca is just SO soft. I’m spoiled. So I said, “Spazzy, my love…let’s do this in alpaca…” and a project was born.
Here is what the lovely Spazzy has spun. You can purchase it in the Alpaca Farmgirl Shop.
I have tons of it so let me know if you would like multiple skeins and I can make you a special listing. (katy (at) alpacafarmgirl (dot) com). See more of Spazzy’s Handspun at her Etsy Shop.
