Alpaca Handspun Wrap

Forgive me, fiber darlings, as the golden falling walnut leaves and the true approach of autumn sends me into paroxysms of nostalgia - you see, I've completed a very long personal fiber art project, and will not hesitate to use it as an excuse to wax sentimental 😉 Translation: This is a long personal reflection...

Alpacalypse Now
