I have constructed a new spinning fiber batts - SPIDER WEBS COLLECTION© .

These batts are soft, fluffy, delicate and feathery, Just gorgeous and will spin like a dream. They remindes me spider webs, that how they got the name.

The Spider Web Collection© is limited edition, when they are gone they gone. If you like a certain colorway and need a large quantity, let me know I’ll prepare it specially for you.All fiber are handpainted by me, with washfast dyes.

This delicious, scrumptious tomatoes and beans were fed with "some" of our pacas black gold.

I have been dyeing a lot, specialy alpaca yarn and silk.

Both fiber take acid dyes beautiful, colors are deep and profound.

Using citric acid instead of vinigar, less smelly. Same results.

It is been so long since I'v last posted here, and so many things happend here at Silver sun.

Would I start from now and go back :) or the other way :)

Now, August of 2009 the last cria of this season came to the world, 25 Lb. of, huge, healty baby, mama needed a little help to take Mr. Giant out, but all is good, he needed milk supplemt for 3 days, till his mama understood what is going on around, why baby want food all the time. Well, baby pacas need 10% of their weight in milk a day. Today, 10 days after he is gaining weight in normal steps, pronks around with his girlfriends, and look for mama when it's time for dinner.

And he got beautiful fiber, he is curly as a sheep, he is a nameless cria for now, any idea?
