I know I don't mention it much, but I am still spinning on my borrowed Louet. This is my second project. I purchased this alpaca spinning top at the Holland Dutch Kerstmarkt. This is from a local Alpaca farm, Circle R Ranch. I was able to spin the 8 oz into a little over 116 yards of 2 ply worsted.
This baby alpaca was especially soft and smooth, but that also made it difficult for a new spinner. The fiber didn't hold onto itself very easily, so I found myself letting a lot of thick bunches of fiber go by just to avoid breaking my flow. I also overspun some areas, which caused areas of the ply to coil onto itself like a bad perm. All in all, it turned out decent. I think I could make a nice fluffy scarf or mittens with this. But first, I have to take on the adventure of color dying.
