Some weeks ago I obtained for use with some of my other sites a research tool which makes it easy to find the most popular products sold on Amazon. For some reason unknown to me I’d never used it for this Fine-Alpaca site. Then this evening it suddenly occurred to me to ask it “What are the most popular items sold on Amazon.co.uk related to alpacas?”
In a matter of seconds I had the answer and at the top of the list, with more reviews than any other item and every one of them 5-stars, was the Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook (2011). I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never seen a copy but with unanimously rave reviews I don’t hesitate to link to it from here.
In well over 300 pages, with many illustrations, More than 200 breeds of sheep, goats, alpacas, vicunas, rabbits and other fleece and fibre producing animals are described along with the characteristics of their fibres (or ‘fiber’, as the book uses the American spelling). British rare breeds are well covered too.
Here are four alpaca gift suggestions at widely varying prices.
We’ve included a book of twenty-five beautiful alpaca garment designs from Peru – here sourced from Foyles of London.
The other three items come from John Lewis: a gorgeous black coat (in 52%/48% alpaca/wool), a man’s jumper in alpaca/cotton mix, and a luxuriously soft alpaca throw (200cm x 150cm) for your sofa or your bed.
If these don’t quite fit what you’re looking for click on one of them nonetheless and see what more there is on the site to which you are taken.
