A gigantic, Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky pompom!

Last March, Blue Sky Alpacas was a proud contributor to the Polar Pom-Pom Project, a collaboration between artist Deborah Hamon and a group of third-, fourth-, fifth-grade students from all across the U.S. and the United Kingdom. Using eco-friendly yarns (including Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky), the kids created thousands of fluffy pompoms. Hamon took these fuzzy balls of yarn to the Arctic Circle and used them to create a series of photos illustrating climate change. You can see a fantastic video compilation of the project here:

Ten hanks of Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky result in the king of the pompoms!

Inspired by the 2,150 pompoms created by the school children, we made our own massive 10-hank, Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky version.

Our giant pom at home in the snow.

When we trekked outside to take this picture it was 1°F in Minnesota. And we couldn’t help but wonder what was the temperature in Svalbard where Hamon took her photos?

Turns out it was actually warmer there–a balmy 28°F!
