Random note…

Spinning Alpaca is scary.

This might be because I am spinning straight from shawn fibre, rather that carded fibre. But I’m a bit scared that plying it is just going to make it fall apart.

That said, I guess that’s not the end of the world, since I could just card it, and have another go.

But still. Scary.

ETA: Ok maybe not so scary. Plying was fine. Totally fine.

Now let me share a hideous photograph that I took with my phone camera in the grey light of a generally wet afternoon:


And while we’re at it, a much much better photo of the fibre in question before spinning:

Much better.
