Local Alpacas from Autumn Mist

Autumn Mist Sport 1024

We just got some very beautiful yarns from Autumn Mist Alpaca Farm and Fiber Mill in Prattsburgh, NY.  Many colors in different weights are available. We haven’t had a chance to unpack the box yet but those who attended last night’s Open Knit Night got a sneak preview.  Here’s a photo to share with everyone! Come feel some beautiful local alpacas and take some home!


XOX Tee in Shibui Merino Alpaca

This is one of our favorite designs from the spring/summer 2014 issue of knit.wear magazine from Interweave. This top is knitted sideways separately in front and back, with a lovely collar of XO cables.  Shibui Merino Alpaca (50% alpaca, 50% merino) is incredible soft and squishy but has a great stitch definition. Which is your color this spring/summer?
