Alpaca Yarn & Knitting: Holiday Gift-Giving Guide

It’s that time of year, when the days become shorter, and the evening skies wrap us in a harvest moon. Fall is in the air and that change of season delivers us a period of thankfulness and gratitude for the summer bounty.  It also has us thinking about fall knitting and crocheting projects!

If you’re  like us, you have started planing your fall and winter projects in time for gift-giving this holiday season.  With a full range of alpaca yarns in various weights, blends and all natural colours, we can’t wait to get started.  Hand-knit socks, sweaters for baby, or scarves, toques and cowls, are popular items for gift-giving, and when the starting material is alpaca - its a luxurious and practical gift that lasts a lifetime and comes from the heart!

Novice or beginner knitters will delight in the variety of lopi and chunky yarns we currently offer, easily knit-up as toques and cowls, and with a wide range of various sport weight, DK and fingerling yarns, any project becomes elevated simply with the use of alpaca fibre.  So….find that pattern, choose your yarn and get-set to make something from the heart this holiday season!

In addition to alpaca yarn, we have handy knitting tools like needle gauges, knitting journals, scissors, tape measures and more.  Our exclusive “Yarn Bowls” hand-formed by celebrated contemporary ceramic artist Andrea Piller,  keeps the yarn handy and in one place while you knit that one-of-a-kind creation, and our limited edition knitting books provide guidance and inspiration 

Want to work from a kit?   We love the “TOFT” line of crochet kits and offer them in a beginner level - in various characters including bunny, sheep and of course the alpaca!  Perfect to make something to give, and also nice to give as a gift as a kit!  Everything is included to make these delightful crochet animals.

Our custom designed project bags and totes make great gifts too!  Oversized and featuring “Pippa” our alpaca mascot, these organic cotton bags are perfect for holding all your knitting supplies. The project bag has a sturdy zipper and holds extra long needles and many skeins of yarn, accessories and tools.  The totes have generous straps, a gusset that allows for lots of packing and all of them make great gifts!

Fall really is about getting settled into a new rhythm and we hope you discover the pleasure of knitting and crocheting with alpaca yarn as you settle into autumn this year!
