This wool is what we call seconds or wool from the alpaca's neck and chest, no bellie or leg fiber. The seconds are generally shorter than prime wool, this is mostly from 2" to 3" and although I have quickly skirted it for you, it will need to be washed. There is a lot of very nice wool here that will make some wonderfully soft projects. Blend with another fiber or use as it is! Thank you for looking!
