Caramel Coated

In case you didn't already know, alpaca holds a special place in my heart. Not only does it make me feel warm and fuzzy inside and out, I grew up on a ranch that raises those funny looking llamas, and believe it to be the softest, most luxurious fiber out there. 

My mom surprised me with a beautiful hand-knit cowl when I was home, and I have been coveting it ever since. What makes it so special? It's knit with Tres Amigos Ranch Alpaca! I thought it matched beautifully with the delicious Colorado-made caramel coated marshmallows my mom sent me home with, and both will pair wonderfully with a piping cup of cocoa. Have you added alpaca to your wardrobe?

  6. You'd better believe I have alpaca in my wardrobe. I bought a hand-knitted alpaca sweater from J Crew and it's the softest, warmest sweater I own. Your cowl looks (and probably feels) like heaven. You'll be wearing it a lot.
