Day two of the knitting retreat

A morning of knitting and chatter at home, homemade soup for lunch and then a trip across to the Charente to visit Farrlacey Alpacas
The shop at Farrlacey
It was a lovely drive through the rolling countryside to meet these beautiful animals and welcoming owners Trevor and Dick. The five of us squeezed into their little shop which is packed with gorgeous knitted and woven scarves, shawls and throws, yarn, alpaca duvets and pillows and even alpaca insoles for toasty feet.

Merino lamb
We were all tempted by the goodies, as I have a cupboard bursting with yarn in every room in the house I managed to restrict myself to just one ball of the beautiful rose grey shade for now, I feel a pair of lace mittens coming on, but am also inspired to do some designs using these beautiful yarns, so will probably be paying another visit soon, maybe the crochet group would like to go at the beginning of May....

Farrlacey products are for sale through their website and if you happen to be in the Charente the shop is open Thursday and Saturday afternoons.
