Hi. Let me know if you want to join the Alpaca fleece pool to turn your fawn coloured fleeces into yarn.

I am collecting throughout November and December.

I will be separating into light and dark fawn.

Currently using Greenacres - they will wash, card, blend with 20% wool and spin onto cones or into hanks.

If you prefer to have 100% alpaca yarn returned we can provide options for other fibre processors.
