For Spinzilla, Betty is Spinning…

One of our high-yardage spinners hails from our shipping department. An award winning and published spinner, BettyPaepke is known for her mixing and blending of fibers. As part of preparing her fiber, she loves starting with raw fleece.

Betty has been one of our top spinners two years in a row, and this year she isn’t fooling around with how much she expects to spin: Three pounds of hand-processed fleece and a hint of dyed roving, Betty is determined to spin this pile.

Grey kerakul and two stunning shades of alpaca fiber will keep her busy for most of the week. She says that she has a lot more where this came from if she happens to run out.

The alpaca fiber actually comes from a local farm, Fuzzy Farm Alpacas, which will also be seen in a future project from Benjamin Krudwig.

Betty’s stash reminds us to also support our local fiber producers all year round. If you are hankering to spin a large quantity of fiber for Spinzilla, this is a great way to do it!
