Yarn – Summer Clouds


Happy Friday all, it’s Kirstin here. My new goal is to spin enough yarn for a small throw. The blanket I made for my friend when her baby was born has worked out to be the perfect length and width for nursing, so I’m going to make another.

Since babies are involved, I’m using only 100% alpaca, not a blend. I’ve started with fiber from White Mountain Diana, an alpaca that belonged to our breeder. I’m spinning this yarn as medium weight, but I’m being careful to preserve the loft (fluffiness) of the yarn. It’s coming out very airy and light!

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.
