For the last few weeks, I’ve been spinning some Alpaca with Firestar that I bought at the Pennsylvania Farm Show in January. I decided to spin it on a nice Rosewood drop spindle that I could take on the road with me.
As you might be able to tell from previous posts, I’ve been visiting Wichita, Kanasa several times this summer while my son was performing at MT Wichita. This fiber and the drop spindle was perfect for travel.
Here’s the yarn that came from 4 ounces. It’s 401 yards of very fine yarn (2-ply 40 wraps per inch for those who care about those things).
I don’t have immediate plans for it, but will likely use it weaving something with some other Alpaca.
Speaking of Alpaca: I’ve been working on starting a fiber business. I’ve been washing some beautiful Alpaca fiber and am creating what I call ‘Paca-Cinos.
