Spinning

Since we’ve bought Huacaya Alpaca and Arapawa Merino wool fleece in Dunedin, I wanted to know more about the process of making flat felt or wool. Thanks to Patricia, Verena and I had the chance to make ourselves useful at a spinningwheel. We had some afternoon fun and also did succeed in making our very first ball of wool. Hopefully, it will not be the last…

Due to a lot of questions concering the colour and thickness of the selfspun wool, I add a photo of the ball :) It’s about 10 cm in diameter.

And this is how the wool was washed and dried in the first place.
