How the fiber comes off your alpaca is very important. It takes a year to grow so we take care into getting it off the alpaca in the right way to increase your yield so you can make the most of all of the fleece 1st 2nds and 3rds.

As a BAS judge Jo is always happy to discuss the quality of your fleece.
