FIBER AND ROVING

Alpaca fleece was once called the fiber of the gods by the ancient Inca. Pound for pound it is four times warmer than sheep’s wool, without the “itch” commonly associated with wool.

All our alpaca roving is from Arizona alpacas and processed right here on the farm. We divide it into four grades:

“Royal Baby” (20 microns or less): This is the finest and softest fleece. At this level it is commonly compared to cashmere.

“Baby” (20-22.9 microns): Luxuriously soft fleece. Excellent for use in finished garments meant to be worn next to the skin.

“Superfine” (23-27 microns): A good all around fiber. Not quite as soft as baby, but still fairly comfortable for all but those with the most sensitive skin.

“Adult” (greater than 27 microns): A strong, inexpensive fiber good for decorative Items that will get a lot of wear and tear such as rugs.

 

 

NEW! ART BATTS

“ Who wants to have a little fiber fun? We took two ounces of what ever struck our fancy at the moment and created these one of a kind batts (seriously, we could not repeat them if we tried). Each batt measures approximately 12 inches by 36 inches. We have done the best we can to remove excess vegetative matter from the fleeces but there will still be some small bits of grass in the batt. Batts are ideal for small felting projects, or spinning into unique artsy yarns.

 

Kicking back on the hammock, ice cold lemonade in hand, the sound of children playing by the pool. That is what this batt brings to mind. 100% alpaca
