Fiber Arts Friday: Gift of Fleece

I met a long time Suri Alpaca Breeder last week.  We talked about day job and farming pursuits and became friends.

She was kind enough to gift some fleece to me... a raw fleece and 5 different rovings... all 100% Suri.

Even though I've been involved with alpacas for more than a few years, I am always impressed by the difference in weight and volume between Suri and Huacaya fleeces.

I started spinning the white roving.

My cup continues to runneth over.  Happy Fiber Arts Friday and a solemn Good Friday.
