I received one pound of alpaca, eight ounces of cotton and one ounce of Angora rabbit fibers.
I am crazy about the stuff but I don’t know how to spin, so my next task is to find someone who will spin this for me.
By the time I am done, this will probably be the most expensive yarn I have ever purchased but that’s just fine by me. I like that I am supporting a local business. I purposely requested the raw (versus dyed) fleece because I happen to like it in its raw state, but also I know how dyes impact our environment.
I’m going to choose the projects that I use these for very carefully. Seeing the alpaca grazing in the field when I went to pick up my share weaves a story about my fiber and therefore, makes it all the more special to me. I want to it be something that I will use for a very long time.
