Fancy an alpaca cape?

It's been a while since we posted and quite frankly we miss it, so here we are again!  It's been a very busy few weeks with Kerry at the Bath and West, Marie the intern has returned for Wales and the alpaca stud team wiped the board with their wins at the Kenilworth show!

Before she went away Kerry visited the Central St Martin's fashion students end of year shows because Toft Alapca Shop sponsored two students this year, both with very different takes on knitwear design.  The first was Ana Oqunan with beautiful and technically brilliant embroidered pieces, we're just awaiting her photos and the second was Katarina Benakovic who worked mainly in Toft's chunky yarn.  Katarina sent the yarn to the Natural Fibre Company to have it dyed a beautiful blue.  Here are some of the photos from her show, including an amazing floor length blue alpaca cape.

We can't wait to see and share Ana's photos with you!

Oh and have you seen our birthday party mentioned on the Simply Knitting website?  We think lots of you might have since demand for our competition yarn for 115m challenge has rocketed recently! http://simplyknitting.themakingspot.com/page/simplyknitting?entry=toft_alpaca_celebrations_and_design
