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!).
This yarn is from Delilah and Augusta, two of our fawn- and white-colored lady camelids. Like all alpacas, this fiber is hypoallergenic, lanolin free and very warm.
Handwash in cool water without too much agitation.
