Alpaca and Mohair

I purchased some lovely alpaca roving from a shop on Etsy, a combination of brown, black and gray stripe. I spun two spools of 2 ounces each, then plied them together into the yarn that you see on my niddy-noddy. (Almost 250yds) Now to decide on a project, it's nice and soft with a slight halo.

My next box in the mail contained an assortment of black, grey, and silver curly locks of kid mohair. After a well needed bath, this is some of it drying. I know some will be saved for needle felting, the rest to be carded and spun.

  1. Lovely yarn! So many possibilities. Let us know what you create with it! Cute little curlies - they do beg to be needled felted into little sheepies or curly haired dolls!
