100% Alpaca fiber in a Cloud form. This fiber has been washed and dried and then run through a picker to "fluff" it into a great puff of fiber! This fiber is the seconds (necks) and thirds (legs and bellies) off of our alpacas. The colors are mixed when we shear. We try to put light colors with light and dark colors with dark. This fiber tends to be quite coarse and isn't considered suitable to wear next to your skin. It is however, cheap and softer than expected! This is GREAT for making wrapped yarn! It does make lumpies and bumpies for fun yarn if you handspin it straight from the bag.
This particular item is Alpaca seconds and thirds of a coarse grade. It is sold in 1/2 pound bags Because this is not always sorted by color at shearing you can order:
It will be mainly one color but not pure. This makes it fun to use!
Cloud can be used to spin, felt and decorate with as they are or you can add a bit more work and hand card them yourself before using them in your fiber projects!
We raise and process our own herd of alpaca fiber males and the lovely fiber they grow for us! This has become a rescue situation for many of these boys, and they are at their last stop here at SageRidge.... home at last!
