What I have learned
I have also learned that I will need to either borrow a 30in temple from the weaving center or order one right away. The draw in with the lace was incredible and so there was lots of yarn breakage! So this project is on hold until I can get the temple!
I have also continued working with the white Suri Alpaca. It is really interesting to work with, cause the top wants to just fall apart at the slightest movement. That means, I comb the top and when I take it off the comb it goes directly into a 13x9 pan.
Here is a bobbin of the Alpaca, I will Navajo ply these fine singles on my jumbo Louet bobbins. I will be able to get 2 regular Ashford bobbins on one jumbo bobbin. It makes a big satisfying skein of yarn when you are done.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, and Spinning, Tina
