I recently purchased some beautiful soft 100% organic alpaca yarn from a farm here in Colorado - Grace Gerber at Larkspur Funny Farm - in this beautiful purple color called "Purple Tussy". After some deliberation and fondling of this soft yarn, I decided it needed to become something delicate and warm so I crocheted up this spiral scarf and two pairs of fingerless mitts. One pair of mitts is size Small and the other pair is size Medium - The Medium pair has a ribbon twined through the wrist - the ribbon can be added if desired on the Small pair as well. These mitts can be worn alone or over a pair of those inexpensive cotton gloves in a coordinating color for extra warmth.
All of these items are available in my etsy store. Here are the direct links:

These items are quick and easy to make and are so warm and cozy when you use alpaca, llama, wool, mohair, etc. Make them as fancy or as plain as you'd like. I have more of the scarves crocheted out of merino/alpaca yarn hand painted by Danette Taylor. I just need to get photos taken and get them listed in my etsy store.
