Joys of Spring

Spring has sprung at Toft Alpacas and we are busy with the obligatory spring clean.  Carrie has a new knitting machine out of the deal and the shop has a new roomy sewing box - at least it was until we did a spring clean.

 

It's lush knowing that we've got new designs on their way from Peru and our local knitters not to mention getting lots of odd-jobs done in a rare quiet week!  When we say quiet we mean 'Toft quiet' which is very different to the OED definition - there has been near riotous fleece and halter judge revision with Rob & Shirley, new bed deliveries for the holiday let, food deliveries for the Alpacas, work experience girl Emi who is with us for 3 weeks, some random and impromptu fleece dying in preparation for the felt jewellery workshop in May and lots of press cutting work to name but a few events so far this week.

 

Kerry and Emi have gone to the mill this afternoon to collect new batches of DK & Chunky.  It's a great chance for Emi to see the all the processes at the mill and reports are she's taken thousands of pics so we'll get those up very soon.

 

Remember that now is a great time to take advantage of our on-going sale!
