I purchased a suri alpaca/bamboo batt for spinning in a lovely latte color. It wasn't the easiest fiber to spin on a drop spindle. I had to rest it on the table or floor and still had trouble with it wanting to pull apart. It is better after it is spun. It has a long staple, but no crimp and is silky soft. I used Big Baby, Alpaca With a Twist in cream and striped it.

Here is the thick and thin single


and the finished hat, it is done in single crochet.


I plan to make convertable mittens to match and have started a cream alpaca knit scarf with cables for a complete set.

Awesome that you make your own yarn. The hat looks warm and snuggly.
