Toft Alpaca is a British concern that includes a herd of alpacas, a knitting shop and craft workshop, even a cottage where you can stay on the farm.
The company has come up with a fun package called the Year of Yarn that would be a great gift for the knitter in your life (or yourself, of course!). The package includes seven shipments of yarn in a range of weights that will arrive throughout the year. There are options for beginner and intermediate knitters as well as more advanced knitters, so I assume that means there are patterns included as well.
The Year of Yarn runs £180, or nearly $300 (though I don’t know if they’ll ship it overseas). What a lovely way to help the British yarn industry and learn more about these wonderful alpaca yarns at the same time!
