Our Mascot Needs a Name!

You may have seen the Purl City Yarns shop mascot, the Misti Alpaca, and heard that we would be holding a contest to name it.  Since we’ve been open for a few weeks now, we reckon it’s time for our alpaca to have a name and gender.  So, we’re asking you to help us name our alpaca and have some fantastic prizes for the winner.

If you think you have the perfect name for our alpaca friend, come into the shop and give us your name idea and contact details.  Alternatively, send us an e-mail at  We will be taking entries until 30 November 2010 and will announce a winner during the first week in December.

Our judge, Lois Connelly, will go through all the entries and choose the winning name.  If more than one person enters the winning name, the contestants’ names will go into a hat and the winner will be chosen at random.

The winner will not only have the pleasure of naming the alpaca and choosing its gender, but will also receive one of our little alpacas and the choice of either two skeins of Misti Alpaca Chunky or one  skein of Misti Alpaca hand painted sock yarn in the colour of your choice.

Come down to Purl City Yarns to meet our alpaca and we look forward to hearing your suggestions.
