To quote directly from the letter that was included with this amazing knitted piece (yep – this blanket is so fantastic, that it deserves the use of the word ‘piece’):
‘This lovely alpaca blanket was hand-spun, knitted and sewn together by Joy, the mother of a work colleague of mine. Her only concern is that it will shrink if washed in a machine or hot water.’
Well Joy – we have no concerns what so ever with this blanket. The softness and quality of this hand-spun alpaca wool is amazing.
The family that receive this blanket will be very fortunate indeed.
