We are sooooo glad we did. The Windy Valley Muskox booth was wonderful. We both bought some Qiviuk yarn...so soft. We got a blend (45% Qiviuk, 45% Extrafine Merino Wool, 10% Mulberry Silk). I got one ball for a short scarf; Julie got two balls for a long scarf. It was on sale...and we were pretty thrilled. (100% Qiviuk runs nearly $90 a skein! A blend, on sale, was much more enticing for the pocketbook!) I also purchased up a ball of pima cotton.

While we were walking around, we saw several of our Wyoming friends. So that was cool.
|I also saw a vendor that had an entire wall of tailspun in almost every color, so I had to buy a few yards.|
We saw some yarn that was made from a Paco-Vicunas, and we were curious what the animal looked like. So, on our way out of the Market, we decided to stop in the tent that was showing them. It turns out they are a rare type of alpaca. We got to pet them and also heard them hum.. which is the noise they make. Cute. Not annoying at all.
The day held one more surprise...
