We headed up into the mountains this weekend and spent Saturday at the Wool Market in Estes Park, CO. Being the first time I've ever been to one of these, I will totally overwhelmed and had an absolutely wonderful time.
I got a heady load of yarn and saw some amazing sights. First the yarn, then I'll update the thread with some animal pictures later. Enjoy the pr0n.
100% alpaca by Switzer Land Farm - one 8oz skein and two 2oz skeins
Fine lace weight yarn by Yarn Place - in a gorgeous melon color, 45% tencel and 55% merino. Approx 4.2oz, 3100 yds.
Acero by Brooks Farm - Superwash wool, silk and viscose. Approx 4oz, 420 yds - in a gorgeous dark orange rust shades.
Painted Wuxi by Textiles A Mano - 50% silk and 50% wool - Approx 660yd in shades of brown and green.
100% hand-dyed alpaca by A Star - approx 665 yd in browns and rust and bronze.
Phew! That's it. Good thing I haven't bought yarn in a while. I have a project in mind for all of them so they're destined to become more than pretty cuddly objects sometime in the near future :lol:
