Alpaca Plyed with Space Dyed YarnAshford Loom on My Porch

For the first project, I spun fawn & cream colored llama as sheared from the llama and then plyed it with commerical space-dyed yarn. I wove a simple scarf on my Ashford Knitter’s Loom.

For the second, I spun Louet Seabreeze, an alpaca/wool blend and plyed it with the same commercial space-dyed single. (Yes, Seabreeze; the fiber is lushish and intense colors of the earth … rust, brown, dark grey … NOT blues and greens … their choice of name, who knew.) While having a similar primitive feel, the resulting yarn has a different saturation of color.
