Tomorrow (Wednesday) DH and I leave for Holland. We will be staying with my stepdaughter and her guy in their new house in Naaldwijk. Next week all four of us will travel by car to south of Switzerland (Lugano) for 4 nights. A couple boat trips into Italy are on our itinerary. Then we drive north to Paris for another 4 nights and it's back to spend the rest of our time with family in Holland. I will maybe post with some pics while there if possible...if not I will have plenty of pics when I come home on the 8th of August! Tot ziens!

I had to show more....I mean it's that time of year isn't it? The sheep/alpacas have been sheared and the sun dries the fleeces quickly. The two Rose Greys (all my new fleeces are huacaya BTW) are the most beautiful alpaca fleeces I have ever seen. Mind you, I am partial to the Rose Greys but these are exceptional. Incredibly soft and full of luster...they both have that WOW factor. The Rose Grey fleece you see at the top has a frosted lavender colour. I will knit lace and maybe some gloves for sure. Enjoy!

Colour is somewhat washed out but these are two Rose grey cria fleeces. They are stunning in person and silky soft. Second shearing two blacks and a bay black. First one is another rare colour....maroon cria and second shearing medium brown. First staple is a silky dark grey cria and the other two are silver grey. Hi everyone.....I hope your summer is going great. I can't complain about the weather...it's been kinda sunny...a little cool but that's good enough for me. My summer just got better with this new delivery all for me!
