Announcement    Welcome to Alpaca Avenue!
Thank you so much for your support of my shop! Happy dances happen with every sale:)
I am in the process of selling the remainder of my yarn inventory and am not restocking any particular lines. My plan is to transition to selling hand knit items and possibly hand spun yarn!
From time to time I have offered free shipping but I am not able to do this all the time as it is costly to ship in Canada. I would love to offer free shipping all the time but it is not practical for my size of business. That being said, I am always willing to discuss a solution and if an overcharge occurs, it is always refunded.

Happy knitting, spinning and life reflecting:)

Alpaca fibre adventures and discoveries.

My adventure with alpacas started rather impulsively in May 2008 when I bought my first alpaca Viola. Three months before that I did not know what an alpaca was but was searching on line for yarn stores in Toronto and this led me to meet people in the alpaca industry and was smitten from the very first visit! Soon we had Lily, a female alpaca and then a male called Mukwa and we discovered many of the joys and challenges that come with raising these animals. As we live in the city, we agist our animals on a farm and are able to visit and help out at shearing and other events.
I am so taken with the qualities of the fibre that I knit almost exclusively with alpaca yarn and along the way I bought a spinning wheel and learned how to spin. I love the natural colours of alpacas and there are 22 registered colours but I have also started to do a little bit of dyeing with natural dyes.
I love to support local and complimentary business as much as possible. I hope to bring you a variety of yarn from lace weight to bulky, alpaca rovings and simple but well made hand knitted items for yourself or for gifting.
Thank you visiting! I hope you will discover the comfort and warmth of alpaca for yourself and try to visit a farm if you have never seen an alpaca....they will make you smile:)

Welcome to Alpaca Avenue!
Alpacas are unique and I will be offering a variety of yarns and unique hand knitted items. There are many things to love about alpacas including their amazing fibre and the philosophy of being part of a community that encourages and supports each other is appealing to me. Enjoy your visit to my store!
