I'm really excited about having some raw fleece, straight off an alpaca, to work with. I'm on vacation this week and I've started about 3 new fiber projects here at home. This particular project - starting with the raw fleece - will end up being a dog bed if all goes according to plan.
Chet made me a sorting/drying rack. It's PVC with plastic netting; which I think is really some kind of fencing. Dirt and loose vegetable matter fall through as the fleece is layed out. On the table is 2 washed batches of second cuts from an alpaca. Second cuts are from the legs and neck of the animal.
I put a blanket underneath to catch the debris, but my plan didn't work out so well when the dogs decided it would be a great place to camp.
Why should I care about twist?
