Alpaca Fleece

Right, so I've decided that the sheep fleece is beyond my skills in terms of preparation, I 'combed' a small handful for 15 minutes the other night and only removed part of the vegetable matter. Other issue being I am unsure of the type of fleece and need to know for the show. So... I have bought some Merino & also English Leicester fleece so will try them, they are supposed to be clean and free of 'matter' so fingers crossed they are; I sent off my entry for the ASBA Show last week so need to get spinning :D

In the meantime I got some gorgeous brown alpaca fleece from the lovely Char in my knitting group. Here it is pre and post combing. It's lovley and soft and I am very much looking forward to trying it :)
