2022 Fiber Collection for NEAFP

We recently opened our ranch as a fiber collection site for NEAFP. We got 

the word out and alpaca farms from our local area brought their shearing day alpaca clip. Some folks came as far away as 3 hours. Drop off weights varied from 20# to 350#. 

The total we collected was about 1542 lbs of alpaca fiber.

This past Thursday Sean, from NEAFP, drove 8 hours to pick it up.

   I had fun meeting so many alpaca folks. Together we saved on shipping.

Fingers crossed, we will be a collection site next year.

This project will get the fiber out of your barn or storage place and allows you to bank it with NEAFP so you can get some beautiful products to sell in your alpaca store or give as gifts.

Thanks to all for the huge success.
