Day 18

I'm going to use the drop spindle for the rest of the Tour. I'll concern myself with wheel repair after it is over.

This is alpaca that came from a farm in north Georgia, which is near here. I couldn't believe how much the fiber expanded when I took it out of the bag! It says "at least 3 ounces" and it looks like a lot more. Besides the gray, I have a bag of natural, off-white color. I'm thinking of plying them together. Based on my work so far, I'm going to need more lessons on plying before that happens.
