Starting on the big alpaca wash
There is lots of dark brown, almost black alpaca, quite a bit of lighter fawn and the rest is white so it can be dyed.
In the white bucket is only water, yes, rather dirty water, but just water nonetheless... On the right is the alpaca after the first wash in some clean water.
It's now all lying out to dry and then I can take some of it back to Germany with me for spinning some fluffy bulky yarns!
The bad news is that I will have to move again, although I have just moved 3 months ago! My landlady burned down her own house with a gas explosion so she will need the little flat she rented out to me as soon as possible... nevermind.... *sigh* ...will have to pack everything up again after just about having settled in my flat....
