I have now moved back to the alpaca, but for the life of me cannot spin it thick. I don't know if it is just my technique, or because the alpaca has little natural crimp it won't hold very well if I take too much. So I think my plans for the chunky knit dress may have to be put on hold, either that or it will end up as a 10ply or something ridiculous like that!!
And I am already making plans for this lovely Portland fleece from Dawn. Just got to wait for the weather to improve a little. Some of it will be going towards my Guild ring for the National Exhibition after a bit of dying, spinning and knitting! I've already made a start on one of the rings, but not much to show for it at the moment, hopefully by next month something will be taking shape.
