19:365 Knitting with Alpaca
This evening, I taught friendly people about knitting with alpaca and alpaca blends. We talked about the animal, the characteristics of the fiber, how it is shorn and milled, the wide amount of natural colors available, and how adding other materials affect the fabric. It seriously amazes me how long I can talk about yarn, and how happy it makes me.
