We went to get alpaca fleece today. I thought I was going to come home with one bag, maybe two, but man howdy did that woman cut me a screaming deal. I think I have full blankets from six shearings in the back of my van, three of which are already processed into roving. Two of the unprocessed bags are first shearings! How was I supposed to say no! The fleece lady also had a litter of tiny puppies at her house. I think they were yorkies? Anyway Elspeth wanted to take the littlest one home. Then we went to visit my cousins. Then we all went to Cabellas to look at the fish. I am one tired lady, hopefully the kids are too!

...also, I have a lot of alpaca fleece. Maybe that was not such a fabulous idea. But, come on, screaming deal. It is very soft.

So what are you going to do with all that alpaca? I did some hand spinning of alpaca in my long-ago college days and it was wonderfully soft. Sounds like you're going to be even busier.

Thanks for posting the news on Sophina. I hope everything is going well. Aunt Janet

Yup going to spin it. I think I am going to sell some of it to a friend of mine -- it is a lot of fleece! -- but definitely lots of spinning. :) Sophina is doing great... she eats like a champ, breathes beautifully, and hasn't had to be back to the hospital for anything!
