What can’t you currently get enough of?
Blending different fibers (alpaca, mohair, nylon) with wool to enhance the properties of the wool. For example, blending a lambs’ wool with a super soft alpaca into a batt that will yield a deliciously soft yarn or blending a stronger wool with mohair to make a batt suitable for spinning a good sock or mitten yarn. Also, I’ve been blending dyed and natural color fibers into batts. The pop of dyed color can make a unique yarn.
