LOL!!!  I found it at a local grocery/everything store.  Actually, my son found it technically.  He wanted it for himself LOL  no deal.  It was to perfect!   But to find it somewhere else?  It's not from a big chain, just a mom and pop grocery store.  sorry I couldn't be anymore help!

the locks are very gorgeous, and in big chunks, and sooo soft! (though there are some of the coarser ones too, just need to pick them out.)  I just wish I could actually use it :/  The only reason I carded it was so that I could get a blend of what I had on hand to make a larger quantity and therefore more yarn.

ugh I know!  Its a rash and minor facial swelling I get when I handle it. Thankfully its not respiratory, cause that could be life and death stuff, right now Its just cosmetic, which is sad, but not dangerous LOL

That alpaca you have is gorgeous, and i can't wait to see what you spin up with it!

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?.... Wink Wink to our organizers   Grin

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.

made it home from the 'city' with lots of tiny things  Though I am hoping it fills 3 cups worth....  oh yeah, me and my partner agreed to 3 cups instead of 2, which is just enough for both of us it seems XD  Anyway, I have my container too, which is kinda blah right now, but will be funky awesome when I'm done with it!

yay! I'm glad it all made it in one piece!   And I'm glad you love it all!  I was at the store the other day, and there was Ruby gum this time too!!! I wish I would have looked harder, because you would have gotten both!  oh well!  Your welcome!!!!

oh so it doesn't necessarily have to be crafted with your yarn?  hrm... Thats a good question... now you've got me thinking!  But its to close to bed time... let me dream about that, instead of giant teddy bears coming to life and leading my child somewhere...... yeah weird....
