Range Wool Story: Alpaca fiber came to Fibers First from the border of Idaho and Montana. This beautiful tan color comes from alpacas on a small hobby farm.
Wool was washed, carded, and spun at Fibers First in Post Falls, Idaho.
- Alpacas are part of the Camelid family, about 15-35 microns.
- Alpacas come in a range of colors from white, brown, tan, grey, and black.
- Alpaca fiber is soft and fluffy with a slight sheen and not much crimp. Lack of crimp can make the yarn heavy and fabric can droop.
- Alpaca is wonderful to drape garments that can be worn next to skin.
Range Wool: Alpaca farms are scattered throughout the Pacific Northwest.
