Rust Alpaca Fiber Natural Red Brown Canadian Alpaca Spinning Fiber 4 ounces
Alpaca natural rusty brown spinning fiber
Natural BUTTERY soft reddish-brown Alpaca spinning fiber! There's just nothing like the pillowy softness of pure Alpaca fiber! And this fleece is a gorgeous natural rusty brown!
This fiber is pretty clean with only the odd small bits of tiny veg matter. I have spun up a bit of this myself and I don't have to pre-draft it at all. That's the beauty of pin drafted roving! The staple is medium length and the fiber would be excellent for next-to-skin wear.
The raw fleece was cleaned and processed at a custom mill into pin drafted roving so there has been minimal processing and NO harsh chemicals or fiber strippers used. This means the very best qualities of this fiber have been preserved! It also means this fiber has a very small environmental foot print!
This fiber is 100% naturally colored Alpaca fiber, raised in a humane environment on a small Alberta farm. A very "close to nature" product! It has a lovely hand and the second you touch it, you'll just "have to" get it onto your wheel!
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being potscrubbers and 10 being a baby's bottom this fibers is a 9-10 with a very soft hand. This fiber will felt and can also be dyed but expect slight color variations because it's natural color is not white. Hand wash in lukewarm. Lay flat to dry. This listing is for a (very long) strip of pin drafted roving with a total weight of about 4 ounces.
