Miss America's Knitted Slouch Hat with Crocheted Brim
I love to knit, crochet and weave using our yarns!
I understand and appreciate all the different textures each yarn presents because I watch and feel each alpaca’s fiber growing throughout the year. After shearing, I have my hands on all our fiber that we use use to create our yarn to ensure quality and consistency. This is the best part of my job! Mostly we ask our local mill to create a DK yarn but some of the alpaca blends such as our Maine Heathered Grey from local Jacob sheep, Pooh and Piggy, and Rambling Rose with her son Jackpot, is a bulky yarn. Creating a knitted or crocheted item from our herd or blends that I’ve designed brings such joy!
Sometimes I create an item with a customer in mind as requests occur throughout the year. Other times I decide to knit an item to place in our studio for sale. However, knitting for the shop means you have to be here visiting our farm to purchase. I’ve decided to post a few of my knitted items online. By doing this we can offer those of you from afar to own a unique, one of a kind treasure from our small, family run alpaca farm.
Items will be posted individually with pictures and description in the name as best I can to help you understand the yarn, which alpaca grew it and the completed item. If you have questions please email me and I will respond to your inquiries.
