Lanaloft

I have integrated small selection of Lanaloft with the "Top of the Lamb" because they are structurally identical, the only difference being that Lanaloft is moth-proof. Together, the two collections represent a more complete spectrum for tapestry weaving, as well as a greater color selection for high-definition knitting.

From "Russell Ranch in the Redwoods," comes delightful huacaya alpaca in four natural colors. Cindy advised me that the brown alpaca "likes to roll," so there's a little bit of hay in there.
