The Silver Grey Alpaca is SPUN and PLIED!

Tonight, I finally finished spinning all the silver grey alpaca. SO SOFT. I really enjoyed working with it.

I started out with 8 ounces of roving. Now, I had 8 ounces of a spun single. So, I decided to ply two singles together to make a nice, chunky SOFT yarn. BEAUTIFUL!!!

And SO SOFT! I can't stop touching it!

I'm planning on making a hat and scarf set for myself. After all, I deserve it! :)

I had a tiny bit of alpaca left after plying, so I plied it with a confetti wool single I had in my craft room. It turned out nice too.
