FEATURED ETSY ARTIST - GRANNY ALPACA

North Star Alpacas staring Granny Alpaca is today's featured artist from Etsy - the place to buy all things handmade. Granny and her husband own and raise Alpacas at their North Star Alpacas Farm. Granny offers handspun yarn and handmade items from her own alpacas. With each sale she tries to include a picture of each animal that donated his or her fiber as a way to honor these gentle creatures. Some alpaca is as soft as cashmere and all is warmer and stronger than wool making it a knitters dream. For more information and fun viewing please visit Granny's site at: http://northstaralpacas.blogspot.com http://northstaralpacas.etsy.com
