Last night J revealed that one of the women he works with once mentioned that she raises alpaca. Today he confirmed it. She has 11. He told her about my new spinning wheel and asked about the alpaca fiber. According to him, she seemed puzzled by the inquiry. He's not sure what she does, exactly, with her 11 alpaca, but sheering them and selling the fiber is off her radar. According to her: "I think people just give it away."
J asked about getting some from her. We'll see... she's going to ask some of her alpaca-raising friends the fiber question. Wouldn't it be nice to have some fiber come my way for free?
I have to ask, what on earth are they doing with 11 alpaca?!
