A + Alpaca Fiber Mill (USA): In their newly built mill, they can individually process your fiber into high quality rovings, batts and yarn. Their mill comes from their own need and desire to have yarn that comes from only their animals - yarn from their farm. It is so exciting to raise these beautiful animals with their wonderful fiber. How frustrating it has been to get that special fiber, which you worked so hard to breed for and to raise, turned into yarn. A+ Alpaca Fiber Mill will create yarn from your farm so you can show off that special fiber! Every farm can have their own yarn to market or turn into garments.
 


ABC Ranch (USA): Fiber will be weighed upon arrival and pricing is based on arrival weight. If there is excessive vegetable matter or trash, fiber will be returned unprocessed at your expense. Prices are subject to change without notice. They reserve the right to rewash any fibers sent in for processing.  Their equipment requires the fiber to be free from grease and vegetable matter to run properly. Any fiber not meeting the standards needed to run the equipment would have to be rewashed and the charges will be set accordingly. Fleeces that are very slick such as mohair, angora, alpaca, etc. will process into a better-finished product if they are blended with at least twenty per cent wool. the wool should be of a crimpy type and of similar length of the exotic fiber. This will give more body to the resulting product in the roving form, later in the yarn and again in the finished article made from the yarn. Wool has a memory and retains its original configuration whereas the slicker fibers tend to grow and become misshapen.
