I'm so very proud of my daughter Rowan. She has worked extremely hard this year and has succeeded in taking the raw alpaca fleece from it's natural state to the beautiful display you see above. She washed it, dried it, dyed it, carded it, and spun it on a drop spindle. She has spent something like thirty hours on it so far. Her yarn is truly a lovely finished product.

Unfortunately, although she sat at the farmer's market all day long, spinning, she made only.... $1.00. That's right. One. That right there is why we had to get rid of the alpacas.
