Just listed our Bridget Cowl on Etsy & Folksy so I thought I'd add it on here as well, gorgeously soft scarf.

Autumn Collection

This is the first of this years Collection of scarves & cowls. I have searched the internet for new designers who will allow us to knit their beautiful patterns in our gorgeous alpaca wool. 

This first cowl designed by Elena Rosenberg is called Bridget Cowl & knits superbly well in alpaca because of it's drapey nature. We have knitted it in Lana, Thea & Barbers Pole our colours from the past couple of years & it looks fab, really easy to wear & perfect for all ages.

What's in the basket?

Had a little photo shoot in the the field with the alpacas last week, our gorgeous new scarves & cowls for this year. 

Can you guess what we carried the scarves in? 

Blade, Daley, Wallace & the basket!

JandJ Daley

I'm finally blogging about our last &  probably the cutest little alpaca of 2012. He was born while the Olympics was in full swing & obviously we had to name him after our favourite Olympian, Tom Daley. He was born on 30th July at 12.15pm, second cria for JandJ Wren & another boy, a nice & easy birth but he did come out with a bit of a bent front leg. This sometimes happens we think it is when the cria is a little cramped inside their mum but it usually sorts it's self out after a week & with Daley this is the case as he has 2 beautifully straight front legs now. He is gorgeous, fabulous crimp in his fleece & so sweet looking, very like his mum.
