Tour de fleece day 7

More alpaca today, but this time baby alpaca.

I prepped this in the evening of day 6, and couldn't help spinning a little of it right away. It is so soft and fluffy, the difference between the two types of alpaca is amazing.

I have done about half of it, which should be 15g or so, spindled fine to make a three ply. I possibly should have wheel spun this as 30g is a lot to spindle, tearing it into ver fine strips is helping a lot though. 

Tomorow I will finsih this and navajo ply both types of alpaca, then I think it will be time for some colour!
