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!
150 yards down, only…well, a lot more to go.
