Saturday, in a break in the weather, we were lured outside and took a ride in the country. Spring was certainly bursting. In a nearby area of small lakes and peach orchards, we passed a field of grazing alpacas.
At the very next driveway, appeared a large sign that said YARN. Who could ignore that? I certainly couldn't. We drove up to an enormous shedlike structure and went inside. I felt like I'd gone through the looking glass. In a good way. This is just one small section of a heavenly place called North Woods Farm Fiber & Yarn. Who would have expected this out deep in the country?
I spent a delicious half hour exploring, and eventually left with a few ounces of alpaca roving in a cafe au lait shade. Perhaps for a weft in a lampas project? You never know.
As we left, this guy asked us to come back soon. I'm sure of it.
