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!).
Like all alpacas, our animals' fiber is hypoallergenic, lanolin free and very warm.
Details: 123 yards, 2 pounds.
Handwash in cool water without too much agitation.
