Spinning - Huacaya Alpaca - contract


update on Noble Effort : Spinning - Huacaya Alpaca - contract

i pulled the fleece into smaller sections, then into locks, and then i been flicking them


you can see the cuts on my hand ? yea this little brush is an evil torture instrument i can tell you
but here oyu see, a piece of leather, and a lock, and you can see on the brush, what gets brushed out - first one side, then turning, and other side


sorting out the little shortcuts, and left over hay, little grown in pieces, and the brushed out parts


and this would be a LOT of waste, so i brush this again, and salvage some more locks, checking against the light, to see if it is all clean and neat


after all the brushing, the big part is the flicked locks, and the small part of waste


then i arange the strands onto my handcarders, brush slightly and roll it into rolags



and here its all rolled up, and a part already spun
