|Hand spun Corriedale and alpaca singles yarn|
This is some lovely alpaca that I dyed this summer and carded with some nicer than expected brown Corriedale wool. When I was given the Corriedale by a very nice friend, it seemed harsh and scratchy, a very un-Corriedale characteristic. But when I washed it carefully, the softness returned and I carded it up with this glorious alpaca to make a chocolate and cherries batt for hand spinning or felting. This particular batt is being spun as a special order but I have a few more four ounce batts available for sale!

How the diet is going: Continuing to try to eat more healthy stuff, walking when I can and taking the opportunity to try to kick the soda-in-the-morning habit.
