I spun this two-ply yarn with alpaca fibre. What a treat to spin! Actually, it kind of ruins you for anything else. It's so soft and just glides through your fingers. This yarn is actually on needles to make a cowl. I should get on that before spring is here. Although it hasn't been a terrible winter where you have to cover up everything to survive the cold. Still, it would be so nice and soft around your neck and face.
Spurred by my love of alpacas and all things fibre, I wrote this story about the place fibre still has in our lives today. Really, it was a good excuse to go to a local alpaca farm and pet the cute creatures, as well as talk to spinners about the craft.
