Carding fun

after the challenges where done, i had still some small bits of copper, gold and brown
i seperated them evenly
and carded a few batts
then downscaling the whole thing to make it easier to handle :D
spinning follows

Spinning - Huacaya Alpaka - Ole and Pepe


the last weeks i was working on those fantastic fleeces of ole and Pepe, see the first post here Spinning - Huacaya Alpaka - Ole and Pepe
and sent them back home on friday


it was 470 grams, in 5 skeins, n-plyed, roughtly 150 to 170 meters on 100 gram

i was so happy to get the drumcarder helping me with this load, and i can just dream on and on of the fluffyness of the carded batts :D
i made each batt 50 grams, and spun a batt a day, and then i spent a day for plying


and on and on and on i spun, i guess you get the idea :D
