In the second segment we recorded live from Rogersville, MO where we took spinning lessons from Stacy Heydt, owner of White River Alpacas.

* We talked about the Niddy Noddy Ditty, plying, the Ashford wheels we used were the Traveler, Joy, and Kiwi.
* We spun Cria, Wool, Silk Hanky, Alpaca, and Soy Silk.
* We learned about roving, bats, and roll logs (oh my!)
