I actually know the alpaca whose fleece this is & I know (& adore) the farm the alpaca live on & I know (& love) the people whose property it is & this was a gift from them.
It may be some time before I design something to make with it so, til then, I have lovingly placed it in my suitcase of treasures.
I have great difficulty finding this DMC perle cotton #8 in pretty colours.
There is no end of cream, beige & brown . . . oh & ecru of course. All beautiful . . . but just not for me.
So, if anyone knows a shop or supplier in New Zealand where I can get such gorgeous colours please email (or use the contact link above) & let me know . . .
I'll soon be posting pics on my Instagram feed of things I've made using these beautiful colours, can't wait !
