Yesterday I went to see Jo and Neil at Rushmere Alpacas and met some of their gorgeous alpacas. I was so happy and excited to be able to buy some of their fleece, which I hope to blend together with our Pembrokeshire sheep’s fleece to make some new Woolly Chic DK yarn.
Jo and Neil have 28 alpacas at the moment and they all seem to have their own personalities. Fleur, pictured below on the right, is a toffee coloured sweet-natured alpaca and it is her super fine, super soft fleece that will go into the mix!
I have now just got to parcel the fleece up and send it to the Halifax Spinners Mill in Yorkshire to get it spun into hand-knitting wool. Watch this space for how it turns out…
