Have you seen these Alpaca Pom Poms from TOFT out of the UK? (www.toftalpacashop.co.uk) Simply put…”I am obsessed.” I want to put one of everything. I want to buy more. It makes me want to knit nothing but hats ( more on why I can’t do that later).

I first saw these when I knit Fiona Alice’s hat “Take Heart” from POM POM Quarterly’s Issue #7 ( My favorite issue) and I was enamored of them. Fast forward to a year later when I finally figured out a place to buy them and I have a nice little assortment.

I was very happy to hear that no animals are harmed with the specific purpose to make the pom poms, rather the utilize animals that have passed from natural causes.

I have a tiny sense of guilt in announcing my latest purchases. I am still debating whether to post what I have bought or what has arrived on my doorstop (Please chime in!! I am so conflicted).
