Fiber Haul

In which our heroine attends a rummage sale and comes across vast quantities of alpaca fleece

The sign said alpaca fleeces for $5 a bag. I asked the nice young lady if any were left, and how large the bags were. These were 30 gallon trash bags, and did I want the white, brown, or black? Yes please.

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

A closeup of the white fleece:

The brown is a lovely cinnamon, which for some reason the camera is rejecting. There is no grey in there in real life.

More fibery closeups:

And the black is breathtaking.

Even the guard hairs are pretty! But out they must come.

So concludes this chapter.

that's a fantastic find! what are you going to do with it all? I think you need to find a drum carder at a rummage sale next. As you're the Spinning Rummage Queen, I don't put it past you.

My monitor has finger prints all over it from fondling your fleeces.

I am fainting with envy.

That's like the end of a fabulous romance novel, only without the man 'cause hey, who needs 'em anyway?
