Fibre Products

These knitted and crocheted alpaca products are wonderfully soft as we use home spun wool from only our finest fleeces. Unfortunately, the softness can't be appreciated through a website but it is frequently commented on by our customers! All fibres used are their natural colours.
We will always try to have products available here but if you looking for that special gift or just want something particular for the winter weather, please contact us. I'm sure that we can help you. Below are our latest articles and we will be adding to these in the next days.

Scarves

Our scarves are expertly knitted to unique designs. The fibre is usually 100% huacaya but some blended huacaya/suri is also used which is smoother and more lustrous. All alpaca fibre is from our own animals.

Fleeces and Fibre Products

We have a wide range of colours in our alpaca herd and every year they provide wonderful fleeces for making fibre products. Colour availability will vary with demand for any particular colour.
In preparation, the fleeces are skirted and most 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.
The quality of each fleece is known through wool measurement statistics and so the price per kilo will vary accordingly. Please contact us with your requirements.

Slivers for spinning

To achieve the finest product, our fleeces are commercially washed, carded and processed into long, fine slivers. These are particularly convenient for home spinners looking to create their own yarn.
