Lookie what I just bought!
I am SOOOO excited! I've been watching some auctions on eBay, and finally won a GREAT one. "Buttercup" Alpaca

I'm paying about 30 dollars, including shipping, and the fleece is PRIME BLANKET (they say this particular one is their BEST fleece this year). It is one pound of alpaca fleece, so I'm getting it for less than 2 dollars an ounce! WOO-HOO!!!!!

I'll be going to the Spinning class at SAFF next month, and now I'll have something really special to work with when I get back home.

I especially like the expression on "Buttercup's" face... That will be some super-soft, warm yarn!

That's EXACTLY what I said when I was watching the auction. I can't believe I'm the only one who bid. She has another pound of the SAME fleece up for auction right now. (She must be splitting it in two.)
The auction ends tomorrow!
MORE Buttercup Alpaca Fleece!!
