Alpaca loveliness

This is 8 ounces of the softest alpaca EVER. Daughter gave me the fiber for Christmas and this is how it spun up. I think the color is pretty true. My friend Holly has designed a lace cowl pattern that I'll be test knitting, with the hope that I can do one with the alpaca. I wish you could feel this stuff. It's like BUTTAH

Beautiful! I've been interested in spinning for awhile now. I have fiber, I have a drop spindle, I don't have the skills! I can't wait to see the cowl when you're finished.

Lovely fibre. I'm also interested in starting to spin, but figure that the last thing I need right now is another expensive hobby. :)
