online store not up yet, but when it is, it will be www.happytrailsalpacafarm.com
and, here's the yarn porn:


I chose a caramel/chocolate twist, but they have several other all natural combos, in every color alpaca comes in (no dyes) ivory, beige, tan, buff, caramel, chocolate, grey, charcoal, etc.

oh, yeah! I already fear I may have over-committed! I had JUST promised my granddaughter that we would work on a mutual project - a blanket for her bed - for her October birthday. The very next day, this opportunity landed in my lap. WHOA!!!

How cool! I too would have been content with just the discount! It sounds exciting but maybe a little bit intimidating too! Knitting a few pices would be one think but to be their on-call knitter, hmm... I hope it doesn't become too overwhelming. Or at least if it does, it can be your new full time job!!
