by 7 April 05, 2012 3 min read 0 Comments

It’s tough to get knitters, spinners & crocheters to agree on anything-- let’s face it, we’re an opinionated bunch of people! Fiber lovers of all stripes get into heated arguments at our Idaho storefront: whose craft is easiest for beginners, which stitch is best for a breathtaking scarf, whether metal or wooden tools are better & under what conditions...

That’s why we at Alpaca Direct are so passionate about crafting with alpaca yarn & rovings!
