Inspired to a recent trip to Las Vegas I have decided that cards could be in my future…or rather carding. The new fiber carding machine has turned up and after some minor modifications and adjustments appears to be working with great results!.
Alpacacino can now produce picked, washed and carded fleeces ready to spin and hopefully will soon be selling to fiber artists, spinners, weavers and knitters everywhere.
Mind you my ability to manage social media is something akin to President Trump’s. Fear not – I have partnered up with Gina and Alex from Ross Creek and together with Alpaca shearer John Butterworh will be launching Durham Creek Mills as a commercial on line venture shortly. Already the shop is in its final form ready for release into the virtual abyss of the Wide wide World of the Web and if all goes according to the plan bats of super fine alpaca fleece , blended alpaca/merino fleece and other specialty fibers will be for sale within a couple of months from now.
Watch out for the big media release soon!!
