Spin! Series 1, no.3

Super soft Huacaya Alpaca fleece is a joy to work with, but requires special care to ensure that the finished product comes out looking its best.

The handspinning tutorial takes you step by step through washing, preparing and spinning your fleece. Spinning from the fold works well with fine alpaca to achieve a beautifully soft, fluffy yarn. I chose to dye my yarn, but depending on your fleece you may wish to keep its natural colour, before following the included pattern to knit a luxurious lacy scarf.

Not a Spinner?
Recommended substitute yarn: Buffalo Gold ‘Buffboo’ #13
