I have always had cold hands, uncomfortably cold hands. I have gone through a lot of gloves, thick and thin, to use while typing and it was either too bulky or too thin or just restrictive. My life has literally changed using this set of alpaca gloves...my hands are warm, they aren't dry (aloe i guess?) and I am going to sleep in them because i see no reason to take them off when i go to bed. They are addictively great gloves.

Not kidding

You sleep in socks and gloves?

Socks yes during the winter, gloves I never have before but want to now

My sis does crochet, so I have chulos and footies galore. No contest: the alpaca is awesome. But there's another one, the name eludes me, there's a rabbit and another animal and the yarn goes by the same name, oh crap what's it called?! This is gonna drive me crazy all day.

edit waiting for my sis to email me back.

I'm counting on you to think of it so I can look it up

She emailed me:

Angora is rabbit, Cashmere is goat and of course a big favorite of mine is Yak (but several more come to mind if none of those are the one you're trying to think of LOL)

So maybe I was wrong about the other animal whose fur goes by the same name. No expert here.

edit: grammar, sis. "none ... IS the one" "of which you're trying to think." Excuse: what are you even doing up this early?

ANGORA! Boom, I got it. That shit is sooooooo soft. Now she's gonna wake up and tell me. I guess I'll pretend I didn't remember. "Oh, yeah. That's it. Thanks."

Also, the fur from the belly of a llama is amazingly soft and makes a very soft yarn.

She's retired so she usually doesn't even wake up before noon EST. Let's be patient. I said, "My sis does crochet," which might have been the understatement of the year. She has whole rooms full of exotic yarn. Really. You can't even walk through the room that used to be her office.

That description reminds me of the Scarf Lady from Sarah & Duck.

Here's a still from her yarn room. Cubbies and cubbies of yarn of all colors. Outside her house is a yarn tree that, in one episode, Sarah and Duck need to refill her yarn room for her. They have to harvest the tree and there's a whole series of machines in this woman's house to make that wool/cotton/whatever from the tree into yarn. It's a good episode, here's some video bits from it.
