I brought back from the UK a wide range of other fibres to experiment with. Some are baby camel hair, milk protein tops, goat hair tops,flax seed fibre, soya bean fibre. I was amazed at what types were available and how some felt up.
While in the midlands I also collected rovings from the Alpaca farm. My grandson had great fun seeing the alpaca's and I was taken on the tour of the factory where I was shown the progress of the alpaca, when it is shaved from the animal till its final stage.
