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.
