Alpaca Yarns

Project Description

What are you most proud of? In addition to the different spinning methods that I tried, I also experimented with plying. The skeins include a single, 2-ply and a 3-ply (the largest skein). I am most proud of how much I progressed from the time I began spinning the alpaca to the time I completed the skeins. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to experiment!

What you will need

  • I spun these yarns from alpaca roving that was a blended color--part of the roving was a natural fawn color and the other part was a dyed burgundy color. I also experimented with different spinning techniques to see which I liked I better
  • including the short forward draw and spinning from the fold.

That came out lovely! I just started taking this class today and I can't wait to get into my boxes of rovings and start trying new things.
