This is for a pound of unwashed raw Brown Alpaca fiber. This means that there might be some minor leaf and other debris as well as dust. As such, fiber will need to be washed and combed.
Alpaca fiber can be spun, dyed, used for felting, as doll hair or as premium bird nesting material. Alpaca fiber contains NO lanolin, thus it is hypoallergenic. Additionally, it is naturally water repellent and difficult to ignite. It is also softer and warmer than sheep wool and breathes better.
