It's getting close, folks! Have you finished your holiday knitting or crocheting? If not, here are a few gift suggestions from Alpaca Direct!

Alpaca Slippers

Who doesn't love a pair of warm, cozy slippers! Ours have 100 percent baby alpaca trim, leather exterior, and merino wool lining. Truly luxurious; get a pair for a gift and a pair for yourself!

Karbonz Interchangeable Needles

These wonderful needles are made from high-tech carbon fiber and nickel-plated brass tips. The combination of these two versatile materials is guaranteed to provide an unparalleled knitting experience. The smooth tips are perfectly tapered, which makes them ideal for all types of yarn and projects. Karbonz are lightweight with lot of flexibility. The carbon material helps the stitches move smoothly on the needle. They also warm to the touch and are gentle in the hand. Highly recommended!

Ready-Made Socks

There have to be socks in the stocking, right? Treat your friends and family to alpaca or merino socks; they'll never go back! Our sock selection includes choices for men and women, socks for jogging or extreme sports, and many color options. You'll find something to suit everyone!

One of the many benefits of alpaca socks is that the alpaca content guards against blisters. For me, that's important. My feet are really soft, and they're really prone to blisters—I just love alpaca socks!

Alpaca Toys

Our alpaca toys have been so popular this season. We have many choices, from tiny alpacas to Teddy bears to 3-foot tall alpacas! They are all handmade by a family in Peru (read the story behind these toys), and we've heard from so many customers about how much they love them!

Kids of all ages will enjoy these cuties.

Messenger Shawl Kit

This asymmetrical shawl is worked on the bias, creating beautiful drape. The kit includes the shawl pattern one full-size skein of Frabjous Fibers Mad Hatter and two mini-skeins of Mad Hatter. We have 9 colorways to choose from!

This is a great gift for the knitters on your list.

Your Free Gift!

We want to treat you, so with each order of $10 or more, we'll send you this handy needle and hook gauge. It's great for sizing those unmarked needles and hooks, and checking your gauge!

I hope these ideas help you out with your last-minute shopping. Be sure to order soon so we can have your items to you in time for the big day!

Happy holidays,

Kathleen Cubley
