About 2 weeks ago I received a 1 oz sample of Suri Alpaca. I have not had the pleasure of handling or spinning Suri Alpaca. The fiber is very silky and drapey as compared to Huacaya Alpaca that has more spring or crimp, both are very soft. I need to finish the Llama that I have on the wheel so that I can try this out. I love new fiber experiences. 🙂 I appologize for not putting this picture up sooner, my life has been a zoo for the last couple of weeks. I put Ann’s card on the fiber so you can see where this lovely fiber came from or you can click here to go to her website.
I have also finished a fleece tied blanket for my grand daughter Leena. Her birthday was a few days after mine and things and time got away from me. This was a little bit larger project than I anticiapated (probably because I had not done one before ;P). But it’s finished and it looks very nice. The color on the underneath side matches the bow tie on the teddy bears.
I have throughly enjoyed the wonderful 60’s that we’ve had here yesterday and today. It is like an early spring and so very wonderful. I will try to hold onto the wamth and sunshine during the upcoming cold winter that is sure to come soon. But then spring will be just around the corner. 🙂
