Drama Llama Knitting Company produces handspun and Hand-dyed yarns, as well as knitting accessories and patterns.

Our dream: By moving towards selling yarn from local-ish, ethically sourced fiber, we hope you bring your sweater a little bit closer (figuratively speaking) to the sheep it came from. (Or alpaca, or goat, or bundle of flax!)

For those about to craft, we salute you.

Sneak preview of yarn going up in the shop soon.

Local Vancouver Island alpaca plied with Hand-dyed Punta wool. Amazing for scarves, mitts, hats, etc! 

This colorway is called Sweetgrass.

Savannah got a promotion!!!
I can’t believe that no one else thinks I’m funny.  I think I’m hilarious.

 I will shamelessly admit that I laughed at this.

Oh my gosh, I love every one of pica-pau’s amigurumi designs!! <3 Click here to check out her full collection.

The crocheted llamas remind me of the llama badges on deviantART. :P

I love those little llamas! I must make a million… and dress them up…

Sometimes you can’t help but have a favorite.  I have a favorite, and his name is Paxson.

I can see why! Dudepaca has a killer mohawk :)

Playing around with my hand-carders, mixing light suri and dark huacaya locks.

The whole time I was working with this I couldn’t stop thinking about ice cream…

Here’s the finished yarn.

Handspun for Mom.

My mother recently decided that now isn’t the right time for her to start spinning.

(Nor is the $20 garage sale wheel my fiance picked up the right tool, considering it’s repair is not going well…)

So she sent me the spinning fiber she was saving for her adventures. This skein is spun out of dye-soppers carefully picked out of a giant tub at Knotty by Nature in Victoria, B.C. (hers) plyed with creamy alpaca, born and raised on Vancouver Island (mine.)

It’s gorgeous, and I’m pretty jealous that I’ll be giving it back to her.

Even alpacas are like “wtf are those ugly things”

Dude. There is no shame in five-fingers. My entire family wore them to my brother&#8217;s beach wedding. (Including him!)
