Holiday Weekend Fiber Fun!

What a perfect way to spend my holiday weekend....dyeing gorgeous alpaca yarns ...both Suri Silk and Lace Weight skeins drying. I wonder what they will become?

...and weaving away on a black alpaca weft over cotton warp fabric. The alpaca yarn was made from my own suri alpacas...Iridessa and Ode To Joy.

After washing the finished fabric, the alpaca will felt slightly and fill in the see-through areas. It will make a really nice, light-weight, yet warm skirt that should drape beautifully!

Happy Memorial Day!
