1) Extreme relaxation
2) Checking out properties to get an idea of what we want and where
3) Visiting and cuddling various critters, including Alpacas
and for me..
4) Acquiring some alpaca fleece for Arthur
Happily we succeeded in all objectives, and this is the product of number 4:
An absolutely succulent bag of Suri fleece in a rich caramel colour.
It is incredibley silky soft - almost creepy in its likeness to human hair, but so much softer and finer. I am very much looking forward to spinning this up, and plan to play with it pretty much un-tampered with - I don't think I'll card it out or anything, just spin straight from the luscious fleece, all in its little locks of smooth silky goodness!
Has anybody spun with Suri Alpaca fleece before? Any hot tips or tales of delight?
