A couple of weeks ago I attempted plying for the first time, with just a small amount of spun singles. The result is hit-and-miss enough (and the amount small enough) that it’s probably going to join my ‘gallery of learning’ as I like to call it, and never ever be used. But it was still … More Time to ply!
So, about a month back I had the opportunity to buy a couple of alpaca fleeces from Welsh Valley Alpacas. I started out spinning from the fleece raw but decided that both the experience and the end product would be better if it was carded first – so off I went, and today my hand carders … More Hand Carders arrived!
