Fiber of the Week - October 8

Here's the yarn and here's the baby. How can you resist?

This week in Essex County we are enjoying the Topsfield Fair which is America's oldest agricultural fair, having started in 1818. The fair hosts a giant pumpkin contest, and this year's winner came in at 1, 464 pounds and was grown by Wesley Dwelly of Massachusetts. That's why I'm showing this color for the yarn of the week. Of course, you can see llamas at the fair and this leads us to the identity of the fiber of the week.

This week's 20% off fiber of the week is Baby Llama by Elsebeth Lavold. It's a big favorite in the Coveted Yarns family because it's so much fun just to pet the soft, soft yarn!
