This was the first fiber to come off the drum carder – I had this stuff dyed and ready for the moment the carder arrived at our house.
It’s some lovely soft alpaca fiber from Franchesca of Alpacas at Tucker Creek. 18.8 microns! Love!
It spun up into some very soft and fine 2 ply laceweight. That pic’s color is really off, it’s much pinker.
I only dyed 30 gms, which spun into 256 yds, not enough for a large lace project but perfect for a light airy scarf. Tiennie just posted instructions for a very simple feather and fan scarf and it seemed like the perfect match for this yarn. I took out one pattern repeat because I have so little yarn, but it should block to about 7 inches in width.
That’s a pretty accurate color.
I’m off to knit some more!
