And to go along with the new year, I have several pounds of newly boxed fleece, ready to be shipped out to the mill. No matter how many times I do this, it gives me a fun little feeling of excitement and anticipation.
In the box is the gorgeous fleece of my two youngest alpacas, Nate and Kwame. It always makes me laugh to see the difference in volume between these two. 5 pounds of Kwame’s suri fleece looks quite small compared to 3 pounds of Nate’s huacaya fluff.
This batch will be carded into beautiful roving and will be returned in approximately 3 months. As soon as I have it back it will be available for purchase on my Etsy store.
Well, minus the few ounces that I may steal for my own spinning and/or felting. It will be very hard to resist all of that pretty, shiny softness.
