Holy cow. this moved really quickly from this morning.....
... Loudxmouse, I've never spun cotton, I'd love to try it... Do you like raw alpaca?....
to our organizers
well...how raw is raw... haha
I don't think my roommate, aka grandma would be kosher with me washing animal bits in her white-carpeted house
Well, its dusty. mostly its dusty, there is VM in it, but really not an excessive amount. its definitely not white, I think it is from a white/brown alpaca. I have some that I ran through the wash on Wool cycle twice, and it came out okay. I could probably manage to wash it without reacting to terribly to it. Like I could wear long sleeves and a hood and a dust mask (which is what I'm going to have to do to get it out of my house at some point anyway) And then hop up on Benadryl LOL
Its weird that once you come into contact with fiber arts, its addictive eh? I can't get enough! I know there is much much more that I need to learn.
