Yes! They are such a PAIN....LITERALLY!
Tonight, I was able to finish spinning all the silver grey alpaca. It took longer than I expected. 8 ounces of alpaca takes longer than 8 ounces of wool for some reason. I guess because it's a little harder to spin.
When I was finished, I had 2 full bobbins of yarn, so I plied them together. The finished yarn is SO BEAUTIFUL! I'm so proud.
I had a tiny bit of alpaca left on one spool when I finished plying, so I looked in my craft room, and found a bobbin of confetti wool I had worked on some time ago. I put it on the lazy kate with the alpaca, and plied them together to make a nice yarn too!
I cannot believe how soft that alpaca yarn is. Unbelievable.
I can't keep my hands off it!
I plan on making a hat and scarf set for myself. Anyone know of a good pattern for chunky yarn?
