Super Alpaca

Leftover from a photo shoot, I am a very fortunate recipient of alpaca fiber. Three examples were provided. The first is a super super bulky with some extra twist.

My swatch used up the entire 55 yards._DSC0227

If I can figure out a good backing and filling, it will used as a throw pillow.

The other two alpaca examples including roving and nearly 8 oz of locks. I’m hoping to spin the roving, even with my limited experience, into enough for a hat. I don’t have any carders, so I’ll have to consider the possibilities for processing the rest.
