Silkie's Spotlight - Day 13

Wicked soft core spun fiber makes a great gift for weavers and finger knitters. This core spun fiber is 100% alpaca tightly wound around a wool core. We also use it for handles on our Felted Wine Totes... (stay tuned, they are coming into the Silkie's Spotlight soon). If we get really bored this winter we may even make some Rastafarian dreadlocks, mon. Sold by the yard.

Hang 'em. Post stuff with 'em. Decorate with 'em. Any way you choose to use them, these whimsical mini-pacas will brighten up a room. These are handmade ceramic pieces created and fired at Marcia's Mud studio. Great stocking stuffers or year round gifts.

Silkie's Spotlight - Day 9

It's Friday!! Time to cuddle up and watch a great flick as the weather starts to push us inside. Curl up in this beautiful, lightweight but oh so warm throw. Bulky doesn't = warmth. Hollow fibers of alpaca fleece hold on to warmth. The look is classic. The feel is tremendous. Throw one on this weekend!!

Silkie's Spotlight - Day 8

"I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you...."
Go ahead and bring your wine out to the pool or on the patio. It is made of shatterproof plastic. It is stemless and has a nifty finger grip in the back. If you do happen to drop this glass, it won't break but you may need to refill. Remember your favorite alpaca farm every time you pour. Cheers!!

Silkie's Spotlight - Day 7

Perhaps the most frequently purchased alpaca item after yarn are socks! Remember when you got socks for Christmas from your sweet Aunt Agnes and you were told to smile and be nice and say thank you for the socks!!?? The thanks you get when you give someone a pair of alpaca socks will be way more heart-felt than that! Alpaca socks are a treasure because they are warm, soft, cute, moisture wicking. Alpaca socks are practical and purposeful. We have many varieties right n read more...

Silkie's Spotlight - Day 6

Who can resist the Abdominal Snow Monster? This guy will be a treat to hang on the tree every year. Each one is a hand knitted blend of alpaca boucle, with suede hands and beaded teeth. Yeti is 5" tall and hangs by a loop of yarn. Get 'em while they last because they are flying out of here.

Silkie's Spotlight - Day 5

What can be more practical on cold days than a shoe insert? Seriously, I keep these in my barn boots and my casual shoes all winter long. Made from 100% alpaca, they keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable. These may seem like a boring gift idea, but for the friend who has everything... I'd be willing to bet they don't have these awesome little beauties. They also make a great ice breaker for the groom who is getting 'cold feet'. Ha ha. No matter how you gift them, the recipie read more...
