New labels for my line of yarn- My Old Kentucky Home Spun
"A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."

Last Monday I visited Ohio Valley Natural Fibers and brought home over 2lbs of white and brown blended roving- 100 % Alpaca; a new fiber for me.
50% suri, 50% huacaya
I have already spun over 1600 yards and am going strong.
I'm calling this colorway Vanilla Chocolate Swirl
