Fear of piano wire ~

As I continue to spin this lovely 60/40 alpaca/merino , I worry about spinning "piano wire" which is the term used by my spinning teacher for super hard and tough singles that sometimes occurs with alpaca. I have tried spinning alpaca and did get piano wire, and yet I am hoping that this time I am spinning with more loft and air and less tension in my singles.
This fiber is from my newest favorite Taylored Fibers, a local couple from Washington, and I love their fiber and cannot wait to start on the next bump.... not sure which bump it will be as they are all so GREAT!   Oh, first I have to finish spinning these singles and then ply them into soft and lovely yarn...please, no piano wire!!!!!  Please!!!!!
