*ARTISAN YARNS*

Hand dyed Yarns from Hampden Hills Alpacas

Like Fine Wines, we feel that quality Artisan Yarns are hand-crafted with care and passion.  Our hand-painted and hand-dyed yarns are a collaboration of two Massachusetts Alpaca breeders & are dyed by hand in small batches on our own alpaca farms.  There is nothing commercial about our luxury yarns.  We have been raising alpacas & have been in the fiber industry since 2000 & feel if you are going to invest hours of your precious time hand knitting a project, you will want to use the best yarn you can afford.  Our yarns are sinfully soft, are a joy to work with, in colors to inspire.  OH - and we feel fine wine and fine yarns are natural partners!  

Do you want your LYS to carry our yarns?  Have them call or email us.

Come see us at one of our upcoming shows! (more dates to be added, so please check back often)
