I went with my daughter yesterday to get my Christmas present. She had asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told her a fleece :). She said really? HAHA, oh yeah!!!! So she said she would buy me one, of course that meant that I had to go with her to pick it out :). An acquaintance of mine, through Ravelry (a wonderful place for fiber enthusiasts, knitters, crocheters, etc), had an Alpaca farm that she and her husband had recently sold and they then moved into the town right next to mine ;). I had been talking to her about buying one of the fleeces she still had after the sale of her Alpaca farm. When my daughter offered to buy me one of the fleeces I was OH YEAH!! So off we went to look at the many fleeces she had. I picked a light fawn blanket that is sooooo soft, an older cria (Alpaca baby) if I remember correctly. My daughter fell in love with a brown fleece so of course we had to get that too, so I came away with 2 fleeces :), a total of about 8 lbs of Alpaca fleece. I’m excited to send them off to have processed into roving to spin and then knit. Both fleeces are soft but I can hardly stop touching the fawn fleece, it’s like a buttery cloud in my hands. WOOT WOOT, how lucky am I to have a daughter willing to spend money on a fleece for my Christmas present :).
