Alpaca process, a set on Flickr.
I've finally started washing and spinning some of alpaca I got in the fall. So far so good.
I hope to weave something with the singles. There were a lot of shorter fibers in this batch and it took a bit to get the results I wanted. As I see how much yarn I have, I'll decide what to weave and if I'm also going to use it as the warp.

I describe what i did in the Flickr Set.
