Part of the purchase was the exchange of these wonderful, soft and gorgeous fibers! I got a little sample of 5 different alpaca fleeces that Katy so lovingly raises. Did I mention they were soft. I love soft fibers and these are soft... it makes me feel like the merino top I purchase is second rate. I totally want to roll around in these fibers.
Here is a close up of a little tuft from Luminescence:
Its a silvery gray color and I think its my favorite color from all the picks. I keep wanting to dig my nose in and rub it all around... don't worry, I haven't.... yet..... but it does make me want to grab up my handcards and brand new spindle and take it for a test spin. This is lovely fiber and I would totally suggest ANYONE purchase alpaca fiber from Katy whenever they have a chance. Did I mention it is soft?
