Alpaca is not the easiest fiber to spin - it is rather like dog hair. Not much crimp - compared to wool - and it is somewhat slippery. It barely holds together in the ball of prepared top. It drifts apart and misbehaves if drafted too fine. Seems easiest to handle if spun directly from the prepared mass of fiber rather than pre-drafting like I usually do with wool.
