Alpaca fiber is a spinners delight! Super soft, doesn't itch as pure wool certainly can.
This listing is for 1 lb of blended alpaca / wool roving, giving it the softness of alpaca with the added warmth and elasticity of wool. The alpaca comes from my Huacaya alpaca, Pippin, who is medium fawn in color. The alpaca fiber was blended with white border leiceister sheep's wool from a local Vermont farm in an 80 (alpaca) / 20 (wool) blend. It is mostly brown in color with flecks of white that brighten it up some.
I've attached a photo of the roving from which your desired quantity will be pulled. It spins up beautifully and is lovely for whatever your crafting needs are!
After shearing, the fibers were skirted by myself (carefully ridding the fiber of guard hairs and vegetable matter) before being cleaned and processed at a local fiber mill. It is fairly clean of vegetable matter but there is the occasional bit of something that can be easily picked out, if so desired.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or desire a larger quantity.
