Mill it!

Today I threw in the towel and admitted to myself that I would not have time (or interest) in preparing our alpaca fiber. I am a KNITTER! So we took 5 years worth of sheared fiber to a fiber mill. It weighs around 130 pounds.

We sorted through 72 small bags of fiber to determine how it should be used. There are so many choices...

We will turn 84 pounds of it into yarn, and 45 pounds of it into rug yarn, rugs or felt.

We saw a new-born cria. Sorry for the lack of pictures, but you can take our word for it when we tell you that it was the sweetest little creature!

We are exhausted. But the good news is that we have until January to rest and set up an Etsy shop to sell all these goods from! Let us know if you would like to pre-order.
