What's been on my wheel -
A couple of years ago, some friends of ours gave me 4 or 5 Alpaca fleeces. Two of them were this lovely coffee color - in fact, the critter's name was Java - two were that pretty rose grey color, and unfortunately the black fleece came infested with moths - it went in the dumpster. But when John was meeting up with Chuck from Evergreen Fleece Processing to take him the last of our Shetland fleeces, I decided it was time to get those fleeces out of the living room so I took them along with. The results were about 8 lbs of lovely alpaca roving.
This lovely Alpaca fiber has 20% Merino and it is a dream to spin. I have about 5 pounds of it. There are also about 3 lbs. of straight rose grey alpaca roving (not blended with wool) If you are interested in buying some fiber, or having me custom spin you some yarn, leave me a comment. :-)
