I took some alpaca fiber over to a farm to get it 'blown' out in her big tumbler. It really did a nice job getting the VM out along with a lot of the shorter fibers. Now I can either send it to the mill or wash and card it myself. I don't have a de-hairing machine and its too tedious by hand, so it probably will end up at the mill.
I'm spinning some of the fiber my good friend Judi from Serano Alpacas sent me a couple weeks ago. It is just incredibly soft. I'm just about finished with four oz of Jasper/Alex, which is a dark burnished auburn. I may just make something for myself with this!
