Looking for fiber?

I was contacted by a friend from Bear411 who has a friend who raises llamas and alpacas (among other critters). He's looking to sell fiber and is new at it.

Blocking. YIKES!

Okay Boyz,

Am ready to block a bunch of projects... 2 scarfs, a neck warmer and a shawl...

Never having "blocked" before, I thought I would ask the experts.
