Farm to Bobbin Complete!


Hand-spun Alpaca Yarn  Here is the final count of 2-ply alpaca yarn that I lovingly picked, washed, carded (well, some of it), spun, plied, and set into the yarn before you.

Thanks to Julie Wier from Wier World Alpaca Farm in Maine, I got to learn and experience something very new and different.  This was the first time I had EVER worked with raw alpaca, straight off the backs of the lovely animals that work hard all year to provide us with such wonderful fiber.  It was an adventure in fiber, if you know what I mean!

Now these hanks of handspun goodness are off to their original owner in a different form, of course.  I hope she’s excited to see them as well as satisfied with my beginner ways of handling raw fleece.

About craftcafedfw

Ashley is an elementary school teacher in the Fort Worth area who has a vision and mission to bring community members together in the name of arts, crafts, and the greater good. I am in the process of building up the name of Craft Cafe as not only a place where crafters meet to enjoy themselves as they work, but as a community outreach movement to improve the lives of others, namely children, in a variety of ways. Although the idea for Craft Cafe is as new as a spring chick, Ashley is deeply committed to the mission of providing enriching opportunities for children and adults through the arts, crafting, education, and the environment.
