Its COLD here in Southeastern Indiana the past couple of days with lots of snow. Since I am off today I am spending it in the warm till I have to do more tending to the animals. I got some new roving back from the mill back in Nov but have not got any plied till today. It is 41% Moorit Shetland, 29% Agouti Angora and 30% Llama from Gama's cria fleece. If you have never spun Llama wool before its not as soft as Alpaca but it has a slicker feel to it making it more elegant in my opinion. This being from a cria fleece is extra soft. I also made some felted soap bars. I made 2 with alpaca but only one turned out the way I wanted and I made another with Lincoln sheep wool. I like the Lincoln the best since it is a little scratchier I think it will work better for a scrubber. Here is a pic God Bless!
