I managed to get out to the Alpacas of the Heartland Open House on Sunday. Such lovely weather. We were able to feed and interact with the alpacas! So many baby alpacas!
There was also a marketplace at the Open House that featured all sorts of goodies made from alpaca fiber. There were hats, scarves, bags, sweaters, you name it. There was also plenty of alpaca yarn and roving to purchase. I came home with 6 oz of baby alpaca roving in this lovely beige color and 2 ozs of adult alpaca roving in the same color. The differences between the two are how fine the alpaca fibers are. The baby alpaca is superfine and really soft. The adult alpaca fiber I purchased was categorized as a fine quality. It’s a bit coarser than the baby, but still really soft. It felt about like a good merino fiber to me. I can’t wait to spin this up!
All in all it was a good weekend. There was also some studying and homework as well as a tiny bit of progress on the bathroom.
Until next time…
