Confession: I have a weakness for alpaca. I'd have the animals themselves, if we had the fences, but we don't, so I don't, so instead I buy fleeces.
I'm a sucker for silver fleeces.
This is the silver alpaca fleece I bought at Hoosier Hills Fiberarts Festival last weekend from my friend Tom Burkhart at WindChime Alpacas.
The fleece is actually a darker gray than it looks in the pic. I washed it right away and now it is awaiting me and my wheel.
I'm thinking maybe fine singles, then a 2 ply so I can weave up a shawl. Or make a sweater.
If I spin fine enough yarn, maybe I can make a shawl and a sweater. Yeah.
