We have a wide range of colours amongst our alpacas and they give us wonderful fleeces to make wool and wollen products with. Colour availability will vary with demand.
In preparation, the fleeces are skirted and much of the larger vegetable matter removed. Cleaning dirt from the fleece and removal of short fibres is done by air blowing whilst tumbling the fleece in a purpose built cage.

Wool staples

Fleece

The colour availability of fleeces will vary with demand and new colours are available as new animals are shorn for the first time. We have found that grey shades are very popular.
Normally, the fleeces are cleaned as described above but can be sold without.
The quality of each fleece is known by wool measurement statistics and so the price per kilo will vary accordingly.
