I'm not entirely sure I'm doing this right. My carding combs (another Trademe win) might be a bit old, but I think it's rather that I'm not holding my head at the right angle. However, I have managed to spin some of this silk and alpaca mix:



You can't really see the blue here, but it's showing up!



Perhaps it doesn't look like it does on YouTube because the alpaca is already carded? Some bits get well fluffed, and others get stuck in the tines of the combs. All the videos and books make it look so easy!

The boss is not impressed, and has taken over my seat, so I'd better get spinning.

It looks gorgeous! I think the cat may approve if you keep spinning...
