I also met Cathy from Beacon Bend Alpacas, who was right across the aisle from me. She had the most interesting fiber - and I finally got up enough nerve to go ask her what the heck that stuff was. It looked like this: It's alpaca with silk (the white blobs) roughly combed through it that spins up into the softest, most interesting yarn. Cathy and her husband raise alpaca, and angora bunnies. Loved those guys!
All in all, it was a very successful weekend on several fronts. I sold lots of yarn, met some hilarious, wonderful shoppers, made some fiber friends (not cyber, - f-i-b-e-r), learned how to spin, and found another way to multi task when reading and watching TV at the same time are not enough.
Thanks Patti (who is not a little old lady or a hippie).
