All day!

Some of this... Became this...
And I did this...
And some of this... (gratuitous fluffy alpaca cloud photo)

I managed to play with fibre ALL DAY today, except for the quick school run and whipping together some dinner for the kids.

ALL DAY PLAYING WITH FIBRE. Rare.

Dyeing, washing sheep and alpaca fleeces, more dyeing, more fiddling around with ideas. (Dye spills on the old carpet...oh well. Had to be the bright turquoise, though, didn't it!)
The entire back verandah is covered with piles of washed alpaca, dyed alpaca, washed sheep fleece of various breeds, dyed sheep fleece in wild colours, and dyed roving. There is a little corner for clothes drying, where the cricket whites are hanging (the clothes at greatest risk of showing dye stains!! I suspect my housekeeping is lacking in priority.)
Got lots of plans for all these goodies. Stay tuned...
