Off the Bobbin

Today, the 100 per cent llama came off the bobbin. I was spinning it for a friend--it's his llama, Knight. I prefer a wool/llama blend, but occasionally I don't mind pure llama or alpaca. It just depends n the intended use of the yarn...such as a lovely llama scarf. Here is a picture of "Knight" before it was washed. He has a gorgeous natural color.

Now, with the llama off, I'm very excited to begin spinning MY fiber. I've started with Genevieve, because I just love the chocolate brown color of her wool. Genevieve went from this (in April)

To this....

I'm spinning it from cloud using the Lehigh wheel.
