I became a spinner and knitter later in life, after I started raising alpacas. I started with two 6 month old females, one gelded male (a companion), and a guard llama. I watched these critters running around, and over the years acquired more, bred the females, and had little cria (baby alpacas) running around the pasture. Once a year, I hired a professional shearer, who shaved off their fiber, and then I had it processed at a local mini-mill into roving. Wow! Now what? I went to a local spinning class and learned how to spin this fiber into yarn...uh oh. Now, I'm hooked into spinning, and yes...next came knitting. I would love to share my roving with you. I hope you like it (love it!!!) as much as I do!
