I saw an alpaca named Benny get sheared today.
That’s about 3 pounds of fiber! I soaked 4 ounces and it was not very dirty at all! Just a bit dusty. A beautiful color, don’t you think? I can’t start to spin it until my current FOREVER project is done. I’m ready to ply another 4 ounces tomorrow morning. But I still have about 12 ounces to comb and spin.
This past weekend Gianna was in another softball tournament. This tournament drew a lot of teams from the suburbs. We went 2-2. We played well on Saturday and made a lot of errors on Sunday. Gianna played really well. She pitched two games very well, and one game not so well. She hit 3 doubles and one OUT-OF-THE-PARK homerun! That was really exciting. Her goal this year was to hit a ball over the fence and she accomplished it. 😊
Back to spinning the wool so I can get started on the new alpaca fleece!
