ROLLER COASTER EARRINGS
Simple but exceptional. These long teardrop earrings are made of 100% pure alpaca yarn without any admixtures. The yarn used is a blend of fibre grown by our alpacas Arietta, Monty and Dyme. The fibre is spun into yarn by The Border Mill, who specialise in alpaca processing, before then being sent to Marta at Alpacapella Jewellery to be turned into our stunning collection of unique alpaca jewellery creations.
The earrings are elegant and very light to wear and make for a very special gift.
