|This is Kai after her haircut. I swiped this photo from Danni's blog here.|
A couple of weeks ago I showed you the luscious chocolate-colored Kai Llama fiber from Danni's place in Oregon (see Getting Ready to Spin). I've been working away, preparing the fleece for spinning. It's so nice to be able to work on it outside, because it can be a messy job.
|Here is the fleece, just as it came from Kai. |
Danni offered to sort the fleece, but I said to just send the whole thing.
|On our hot summer days the water straight from the hose is nice and warm. |
The fiber got a short soaking.
|This mesh chair was a handy place to dry the fiber, since it could drip on the patio|
The next step, hand picking or teasing, takes patience and a lot of time. I will show you what that looks like in a few days.
