Misti Alpaca's Visit to ImagiKnit!
Mark your calendars! Miguel and Lisa Paz from Misti Alpaca will be coming to visit on October 24th!
There are a few columns on in the center wall of the store that people ooh and aah over all day, every day. It’s the columns that contain a store favorite yarn – Misti Alpaca Chunky.
It’s a rare opportunity to be able to meet the family that produces alpaca yarn and hear first hand about the history and making of this wonderful yarn but you have this chance on October 24th from 5 – 7 P.M.
Misti International is a family owned business in Peru and Miguel is the fourth generation to carry on the tradition of designing the highest quality alpaca and alpaca blend yarns. The Paz family is involved in all stages of the alpaca industry from raising the alpacas to processing, dyeing and marketing the alpaca yarn. The family history spans eighty years and is a fascinating story. Miguel will give a brief presentation of Alpacas, their dye studio and an overview of the process from raising the animals to the final yarn. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the family that brings us one of our favorite yarns!
For an added bonus, we will be hosting a Misti Alpaca trunk show later this month! Stay tuned for more info.
