The softest, high quality PURE ALPACA YARNS for your crafting enjoyment

Hand sorting the raw fleece

Alpacas are shorn at the beginning of summer, around October, each year. Samples of fleece are taken from each animal before shearing and sent for quality testing to one of the 2 Wool Testing Laboratories in South Africa

During shearing the fleece is sorted into various batches according to micron, the feel and softness of the wool as well as colour. The labour-intensive process of cleaning, combing and spinning is done at a mill. Hand-work as well as machines are involved.

Hand-spun yarns are another of our specialities.
