I am a spinner -- I use mostly my Turkish spindle -- it makes such a nice ball of singles -- very pretty. Maybe someday I will go to a wheel, but that would be a long ways off.

Hello spinners! Just in case you never saw my listing on the barter page, I have loads of alpaca fiber I have been giving away. You just say what you want, I put it in the mail and tell you what the postage was, and we are both happy!
I still have about 50 pounds of it. And five boys needing a haircut this year. The offer is still open if any of you would like to try your hand at alpaca spinning.

Hi everyone, I hopped on to read the spinning posts as I always wanted to learn to spin my whole life. I finally ended up with four spinning wheels and several drop spindles and learned how to weave. I checked out SandraM's website where I came across the mention of the Shave 'em to Save 'em Initiative program. It looks like it will be a neat program to enter for $15.00 and receive a passport to help breeders with sheep on The Livestock Conservancy list and spin some rare fiber. You receive a passport and stamp for each type of fiber you purchase from a breeder that is participating in the program. You spin the wool and make something out of it and post it on Facebook and/or Ravelry and earn items. Sounds like something neat program to try different fibers and help heritage breeders.

Look forward to getting to know everyone.

Hi Nancy, happy spinning. I have been doing just that this winter on and off. Last fall I finally got caught up on carding the wool from my two sheep. I have spun 6 or so skeins for far this winter season. I need to work at it more. I have a Schacht ladybug spinning wheel, one drop spindle, and I have a ridged heddle loom and an inkle loom. I enjoy working with fibers.
