SpitFace Gunny Is Forgiven

Gunny Fiber

This is what came in my mail today. Three pounds of beautiful baby alpaca (Gunny) roving processed at Suzanne Pufpaff's mill. You are so totally forgiven, Gunny Boy! You even get a few free spits for this fiber.
I have already weighed out a couple of ounces 'cause I can't wait to start spinning it. I spent a lot of time cleaning the VM out of this fleece before I mailed it out to be processed. As many of you know cria fleeces are like velcro to dirt and debris. Those embryonic tips pick up and hold everything.
These colors are awesome. They range from a very, almost white/gray to a very dark, almost black/gray. And, of course, all colors in between. Can't you just imagine?
The picture below is of the boys putting Gunny in his place.

I think I would be inclined to be forgiving, too, Maple, with all of that glorious fiber!!!

I think natural greys/silvers are my very favorite....

Hugs, Cary
