Fiber Fun!

The bags of fiber roving came in the mail from the processor. Here they are, ready for spinning into yarn and then can be crocheted , knit or woven into something warm and snuggly.

Soon we will be shearing the alpaca again. Their thick fleece will be cleaned by picking out vegetable matter like leaves or hay. We separate the fibers by length and I can either comb it out by hand or send to the mill. Either way, I have the chance to use farm grown materials to create useful items.

Having even more creative fun down on the farm!
