Alpaca-Silk fiber to spin

I am really excited to start spinning this gorgeous hand-dyed alpaca-silk blend that I recently bought on Etsy. It is so soft! There are long repeats of color in the roving, so I hope to maintain that in the plied yarn, so it knits up in a gradation of color in the scarf pattern I chose. I will post progress photos over the next couple of weeks. Time to go oil my Kromski Minstrel!
