Alpaca Fleeces

I have been dyeing some fleeces. washing and dyeing and it is fun. I have used mason jars to do little batches, slightly different colors and random fleece.

My thoughts seems scattered but I've done a lot and haven't posted in a while.

I discovered via ravelry Fermented Suint Mix which reminds me of bokashi. I actually have inoculated my mix with a little bokashi juice and added a little epsom salt since alpaca do not sweat like sheep.

Anyway, a fleece I dyed today is very, very nice. The one I did yesterday is nice but not like this one. They are both huacaya but all alpaca are different.

hopefully I'll get my camera back from the county so I may post pictures soon.
