Happiness is a Brown Alpaca



Wow, alpaca is soooo nice to work with. The fibers are longer than merino so it's easier to predraft the fiber for spinning. Plus, I'm getting much more even. My slubs are rapidly receeding. I can see marked improvement with each yarn I spin. I expect that by the time I get through this goodie bag I'll be hooked!

Rebecca got me some beautiful italian alpaca, also in brown (can't remember the brand right now) and it is soooo lovely. It also came with a beautiful shawl pattern which I will begin working on very soon. I love alpaca!

Aww, I miss your family. How are they? I need to call you sometime soon. I might wait until you're done with quals though!
