One of the first things I did this morning was to grab some of the fiber and just feel it again.
Then I figured it was too much goodness to keep to myself. Without further ado,
this is the baby alpaca. While some of this is due to operator limitations, pictures just don't do it justice. It's very very soft. I think I'm going to spin it right from the lock, over the fold, to try to preserve some of the loft and not make a hot tight yarn. It's very clean and a little test spin went beautifully.
This is the Corriedale. It, also, spins beautifully. Just a good basic wool.
Aaaaaaah. I think I'd call this baby camel/silk colorway "Thing 2's hair," although it's even finer. But the streaks remind me of a summer blonde. Maybe that would be a better name.
This silk colorway is "Lake Berryessa." The real lake doesn't look so much like this, but maybe I'm not that familiar with it.
So that's it. Sunday morning pretties. Now I get to catch up with the work I didn't do yesterday.
