Handspun Laceweight Alpaca

Here is the other half of the alpaca that we bought last year at BSG. This is the stuff that was carded by Fantasy Fibers, much better than the result of handcarding. This is 475 yards of laceweight, 3.8 oz
I dyed it with Wilton's food dye in a single color, cornflower blue I think, and when I poured in into the kettle it split into this lovely mix of color.

I am quite pleased with the result, and I will be knitting it into a shawl for my MIL.
