Beautiful rug yarn from a herd of rescued alpacas on an animal sanctuary in Redwood, NY!
This yarn is from a blend of fiber from Frankie Blue Eyes (the white-fibered, blue-eyed guy in the photos) and Zappa (our brown-fleeced handsome man). Better Farm's alpaca fiber is high-quality, hypoallergenic, lanolin free, and very warm. And you can rest assured your fiber is coming from an ethical operation putting animals first.
Better Farm is a sustainability campus, artist colony, organic farm and animal sanctuary in Redwood, NY, providing a safe haven for farm animals who have suffered abuse and neglect. Our seven alpacas — Inez, Buffalo, Frankie Blue Eyes, Zappa, Vega, Delilah, and Augusta — get sheared annually as part of our herd health maintenance to ensure they're comfortable throughout the summer months. Sale of their gorgeous fiber defrays costs for the animals' care, including veterinary care, food, upgrades to their paddocks and barns, and extra treats (we love to spoil all our animal friends!).
We have three different quantities of this rug yarn, which is a mix of colors: white, dark brown, medium brown and grey.
