Alpaca Farm Hunt!

A few years ago when I started getting into spinning I happened upon an ad which was offering free alpaca fiber on a farm up near Mornington. Sounded like a pretty great excuse for a road trip right?

It took us ages to find the actual farm but on the way we happened upon an actual alpaca farm where you could pay to feed them. Omg winner!!_1320145_1320139 _1320143 They were so friendly and cute!

After all of that we went cheese hunting and found a yummy place to have some lunch!_1320177 _1320181 _1320185 _1320187 _1320189

And the result of that? A bajillion garbage bags of raw fiber!_1320436 _1320438

A good chunk of it was no good for spinning but there was some really nice stuff in there too, totally worth it!_1320440

That kept me spinning for quite a while haha! _1320443

This Knitlon stuff was like a staple of market stalls in the 90’s, usually as crochet coat hangers._1260186 _1260591

But you know, it’s actually occasionally useful for other things 😀_1260592 _1260593 _1260594 _1260596 _1260597 _1260601
