Okay, so here’s a bit of gossip. Apparently (dramatic paus) there are alpacas living just a couple of kilometers from my house (!!!) and I DIDN’T KNOW. One of my neighbors told me (it’s her parents keeping them) and I’ve been out and about with the pram trying to glimpse them. No suck luck just yet.
I’m planning (hoping) to buy some wool from them. And as it happens my neighbor is interested in learning to spinn (I did offer her a go on Clara). Just when we were chatting away about classes another neighbor joined in and announced that she too had taken the same class as me and Tove at Boda Backe (not at the same time obviously, THAT I would have noticed).
I’ll let you know on the progress of glimpsing alpacas! And buying wool. Or if we suddenly start spinn-get-togethers out here on the countryside. (The latter most unlikely…)1
