Just a quick post of photos straight out of the phone. I’ve spun up a bit more than half the batts in the post on process, and I’d like to have a record of them, in a place more accessible than buried amongst all the other photos I’ve taken with my phone.
Spinning out of the batt is pretty easy, esp. because this is really fluffy alpaca. It was a bit, “neppy” (i.e. it had little lumps of felty fiber). There wasn’t much “scutch” (i.e. crap which isn’t fiber). Oddly the most common type was bits of some sort of beetle.
Yarn on the bobbins. I’ve reeled it from the bobbin I spun on, to a different one, so that plying will be easier. The colors seem pretty clear, even if the focus is a bit off (if I’m going to use the phone, I need to get some sort of tripod for it).
That’s what it looks like wound on the niddy-noddy.
And skeined. It’s nice, and seems to be balanced. I’ve not set the twist yet, but it hangs pretty much dead-straight.
