We have been working on some products:
I love the subtle yet noticeable color combinations here. The scarf is the plain white, but it doesn't seem plain when knit into a lacy pattern. The hats are fawn color with just a touch of color twist at the end. I love how that twist yarn adds just the right accent.
We have found with home spun alpaca yarn that the more simple the pattern the better. Complicated patterns get lost on our homespun. I can knit cables and all those other things. And in so many knit products those patterns look great! But with my home spun, those patterns get lost. So we stick with simple knitting patterns and let the yarn be all the character :)
