Better question: What's on a llama? A trashbag full of hair! (I read here that llamas produce hair, not wool. So now you know.)
I hit the jackpot again with Freecycle. Someone advertised a trash bag of llama roving, and I zipped a "Me! Me! Oh, pick me!" email back to her. She did, and I had to go through a metal detector and endure someone poking through my wallet--filled with more punch cards than cash--at City Hall so I could pick up the bag during her work day. On the ride up in the elevator, I was tingling with anticipation about owning REAL FIBER, unspun and undyed. My first opportunity to be a real yarn snob, so I could say someday, "What, this old sweater? Oh, yeah, I hand-spun, hand-painted, and hand knit all this myself AGES ago."
Well...(insert some ironic chuckling here)... Turns out the bag is not filled with roving but pre-roving. Raw, shorn hair, twigs and leaves included. Ah, viva la difference. This is going to mean some work, methinks. This is going to mean I can be elevated from yarn snob to yarn veteran. "I cleaned and carded the fiber, too!"
Now I just have to learn how to do it. Any suggestions?
