Yarn – Hot Chocolate

I have gotten a ton of spinning done at the recent craft shows! I started this yarn at Sheridan celebrates, and just finished it. Here are two pictures, one with flash and the other without.

The color is actually somewhere in between the two pictures; it’s hard to get a good shot before the sun comes up. This is fiber from Gustav, one of our shearer’s alpacas. Since we had several of Gustav’s fleeces, we experimented a bit. This fleece is blended with 10% soy silk, which gives it a slightly luminous quality. I also have a fleece (I think it’s Gustav’s) blended with 10% merino, which should make a fluffier finished yarn.

Anyhoo. Yay yarn!

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
