....really? REALLY??

Yup....more fiber has found a home!! 
 Back in February Hubby went to stay with his brother who was having took Hubby to visit a friend to get some wood for's friend gave hubby alpaca fiber....FOR FREE!!! Hubby brought home wood & fiber....two happy crafters here at The Coop! 

In early March I sent the fiber off to Ohio Valley Natural Fibers for processing. Yeah...that's one of those been there done that projects--I'd rather pay to have it processed now. This was only 2 of the 3 bags we were given (one red, black & white) I'll be packing the other bag up to send off in the next few weeks....obviously there's no rush or need for fiber to spin up!

This week it arrived back home. I wish you could feel this!!!!  It's truly yummy....

The fella who gave this to me had collected fiber from several shearings and only one of those did he have professionally, the rest he did himself with scissors!  SO...needless to say there was lots of waste but I did get back enough to make this gal giddy!!

I know what I'm going to be while camping over Memorial Day weekend!!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
