Alpaca and Silk Jacket

Have to thank Geoff for his part in sending up this beautiful black Alpaca he had sourced from a neighbour down in Tasmania.

Back in March is when Sue carded and spun the fleece, the Black Alpaca has had silk bits added while spinning . These were incorporated yet strategically placed within due to the unusual design, across the shoulders and at the tail. The original design comes from Swing Swagger Drape with slight modification.

Knitting had to be done during daylight hours due to the black and with the poor light of winter we have been having, those days have been few and far between. Still I got some time sitting out in the sun for a few hours.
