publique living

AlpacaThrowsBoucleThrows

i was just checking out velocity to see what was new at their web store. i haven't visited in a while because i'm kind of disgruntled that they won't ship internationally anymore. i came across these fantastic blankets by 'publique living.' both are made from alpaca, one of my favorite wool-bearing animals. i love llamas too. see the basic alpaca throw $250 here and the boucle one $200 here.

recently tommy blogged about visiting a farm that had alpacas... they're so cute!

you know i have this alpaca fetish, right? i can't get enough of their cute little faces. gah!

i have south american contacts (i.e. college friend), so alpaca throws are a dime a dozen in my house :)

but those are just stunning...

tommy- i would love a whole collection of alpaca throws for those chilly days/nights!

erica- lucky you have an alpaca contact! haha- i didn't know you had an alpaca fetish! jon visited peru just before we started dating so he showed me a bunch of pictures of alpacas there- so cute!

I have never felt wool from Ilamas or Alpaca, but it looks cosy.

I love alpaca's i remember seeing two fight, they're pretty much all limbs and neck, lol. My friend back in S Africa has a farm of them, they're amazingly cute and v responsive to humans, she can call them and they come. I have an alpaca jumper with alpaca's sewn on, purely for home wear (obv) and i think it might be the softest warmest thing i own. I love the boucle throw, i've been looking for a grey throw thats rugged and natural looking - again shame they don't ship to me. I really don't get why shops don't ship international, it doesn't change that they have to go to the post office , its not like they personally have to travel thousands of miles to deliver it personally........

How exciting you're going to Japan, v.envious. That belt looks great, what did you do to it? cut it? Those jeans you bought look very much like the ones that Alt wore with a black scarf, leather jacket and jumper-tres chic.

You said somewhere that where you are in Canada is still rainy, i'm going to move to canada for a bit soon and was under the impression that once it hit summer, it was summer........

mette- nice! does she sell the yarn? my parents live in langley (i grew up there)

tjohalia- i was thinking of felting projects when i saw the blankets. i looove felt! and felting is so much fun

xax- fighting alpacas! that would be funny. i don't have anything made from alpaca wool, but i would love a throw for our new place. there must be some places in the uk to get alpaca goods! i get so frustrated when uk or eu stores won't ship internationally too! if we are willing to pay for the shipping then why not?!

for the belt/bracelet i just put some extra holes at the end. luckily the friends we were staying with had a special tool to do it!

i commented on your blog about the weather here- we had a few good weeks of summer but it is raining here again. i am secretly happy! fall dressing is on the way! :)
