Alpaca Fiber and a Meeting

Weavers love soft fibers and Icarus delivers.... Meeting at Morning Moon Alpacas was a fun treat. Don't you just love that face?

The Weaving Divas got to tour the barn and visit with some special friends. This little joy is Mr. Collingwood. Named after the famous Mr.Collingwood of rug weaving fame.
 (the alpaca- not the DH).

We then went into Diane's studio/shop and I was drawn to this rack of hand dyed alpaca/silk sock yarn!!! Yummy! Even this much sock yarn would keep me busy for a while.

We had two great programs and some wonderful show and tell.

Linda shares her sampler and explains doubleweave and doublewidth. Notice the eye candy in the background!!

Rossanna not only showed how to weave Kumihimo on a disk, she gave one to each weaver to take home.
