Handspun Alpaca Clothing
This hat was hand spun and hand knit from the fleece of our young, Rose Gray herdsire, Nickleby, and some white alpaca fleece that was dyed red with Kool-Aid. The matching scarf was made from Nickleby's fleece also. Just for fun I knit in a little alpaca against the red back- ground of the hat.
One of the joys that far too few alpaca "breeders" have is spinning and knittng the fleeces of their own alpacas and then wearing it or giving it to a loved one to wear. This is invaluable in letting us know how we are doing in breeding for important fleece qualities like softness, durability and uniformity.
