    Can Cotton Yarn be dyed using fruits?

    I was wondering if cotton yarn can be dyed using bing cherries? They are a really pretty color.... At least my fingers are now from pitting them. I have a ball of white cotton yarn I am crocheting a swimsuit with, and I wanted to dye it with these, but I wasn't sure if it could be done. Is it possible? Or will it not work with cotton? Thanks!

    Hey from TN!

    Hey everybody! I am Brand new to this forum!!! I have been crocheting for about a year and a half. I am currently really getting into crocheting swimwear! I absolutely LOVE to spin , and currently use a drop spindle, but hope to get a spinning wheel one day! Anyways... Just thought I would say Hi!

    Questions on Cleaning and Carding

    I have recently acquired TONS of Llama fiber, and Alpaca Fiber from helping a Llama Rescue/sanctuary on shearing day. I have spun yarn before with a drop spindle, but it was already carded and cleaned... I would like to learn how to clean and card fibers myself. I don't even know how to get started! I have 6 Large garbage bags full of Llama fiber (Grays, whites, creams, and browns), and One bag of a really nice white/cream Alpaca fiber. *see pics below* It is dirty, but not terribly. I have NO clue how to clean the fiber.. Help?!?! I don't have any hand carders or anything, but I know a lady that might let me borrow her's. I have also heard that you can use dog slicker brushes? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance
