Item details

This gorgeous fleece is from one of our 2016 babies, Bonnie.  This is her very first fleece, cut when she was about 11 months old.  She has a striking coat, made up of several shades of reddish brown, with a big rosy-gray belt through the middle.  The photo of the whole fleece is with it laid out approximately as she wore it.  The photos do not do the reddish tones justice - I included my hand in one to help adjust the color, but all the photos look more gray than the actual colors.  The rose-gray section in particular is much more pinkish than the photo.  Because this is her cria fleece, it is so soft, fine, and long!  Her staple is about 5", maybe some a bit less, and it is just cloud-soft.  This whole fleece is just under 1.5 pounds.  I would love to spin this myself, I just don't have the time!  

Bonnie, like most of our pacas, does like to roll in the grass, so there is definitely some VM in this fleece.  Overall, though, we actually have very clean animals.  Our shearer has commented that he's never sheared such clean fleeces, and can often cut all 12 on one blade rather than changing after 3-5 animals like most farms.  We move our animals almost every day for all but the coldest part of the year, so they are always on grassy, healthy pasture.  This means they don't have nearly the access to mud and dirt that most barn-kept alpacas do, so while there are some hay and pine needle VM, there's very little actual dirt.  I personally never wash my alpaca fleece until I actually have yarn!  

If you'd like a sample of Bonnie's fleece, just send me a message and I'll send you a little of all the different shades.  For that matter, I can send samples of anyone you see listed, and I usually have a number of fleeces I’ve not gotten a chance to list on here, if I’m sending a sample I might as well send several :)

My pricing gives a 10% discount going from an ounce to a full pound, a 15% discount going to a full skirted fleece, and a 30% discount by buying a full unskirted fleece.

Shipping is set for a large flat rate box to cover a larger order - if shipping is less for your order I will refund the difference.
