Handspun Alpaca hat and flip-top mitten set

This hat and flip top mitten set was hand spun and hand knit from the fleece of Jezebel with a dash of Pinka thrown in for color. Mittens were knit using a pattern I found in "Stitch n Bit@# Nation." Be warned though, I changed the pattern quite a bit to make it work and also to make them look at little better (in my opinion.)   These mittens and hat are super warm! Jezebel's dam was a huacaya alpaca out of two Suri alpacas and, for this reason, Jezebel's fleece was very, very soft and had nice shine as well.





 

The only drawback to having such a fine, soft alpaca yarn is that I did not think that the FairIsle pattern on the hat and mittens came out looking very nice.  It's too fuzzy!  However, I'm a big believer in the idea that the first job of alpaca is to keep the wearer warm in really cold temperatures without being itchy, and these alpaca mittens and hat really do that job well.
