I just got back from Ecuador and we went to the Cotacachi region where they are famous for textiles made out of Alpaca. I was able to find hand spun, hand dyed Alpaca yarn and the prices were crazy. In the picture the three large spools are three pounds each and they were $10. The hanks I found in an open market and they were $3 a piece. It was very cool to watch them spinning and learning how they dye the yarn. I think my stash is complete for awhile.
