We offer raw, untreated Huacaya alpaca fibre for sale in different qualities. Grade 1 fleece is beautiful, soft fleece which is ideal for hand spinning. It can be spun as it is and does not need washing before spinning. As the fleece contains no lanolin, it doesn’t leave any greasy residue on your hands whilst working with it. Alpaca fibre is very light and is not itchy compared to sheep fleece.
We sell it in its natural state. If you prefer it in different colours, you can dye it after spinning. When washing any fleece or hand-spun yarn, please only use lukewarm water and a mild detergent (suitable for wool). Dry the yarn slowly and don’t place it on top of a radiator or boiler as this can make the fibres brittle.
Grade 2 and 3 fibre is ideal for felting. It is still soft but is usually of a shorter staple length and ideal for felting and stuffing soft toys. It also makes a very good insulator.
Fleeces can also be picked up directly from the farm, especially if you are interested in larger quantities.
For smaller quantities, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
