Lovely soft fiber, but I'm saving it until I get a little more experience in spinning.
I just started spinning this fiber, and I'm sad I got the last 2 ounces. It's soft and smooth. The fibers are so well blended that it drafts like butter.
I loved the entire process of spinning this fiber, and the end result was beautifully marled and smooth. I made a cowl from one 4 oz bag of fiber spun at sport weight.
So far I've spun 2 ounces of it to ply with another combination. It's a bit messy because, being alpaca and silk, it leaves a bit on my lapcloth, but it spins wonderfully and I love the yarn it's in. I'll spin some yarn totally out of the alpaca/silk soon.
This fiber is especially dramatic over-dyed! Oh the joy of spinning such beautiful stuff!
