    Hi there, wanted to let you guys know about a deal. My friend who has a large alpaca farm is being forced to sell due to personal issues. I am her webmaster, and good neighbor, so I am helping her with this. She has a garage and basement full of fleece in nearly every natural alpaca color....

    White
    Beige
    Light Fawn
    Med Fawn
    Dark Fawn
    Light Brown
    Med Brown
    Dark Brown
    Bay Black
    True Black
    Medium Silver Gray
    Dark Silver Gray
    Medium Rose Gray

    She would really like to sell this fiber. We have both blanket fiber and secondary fiber available. (Obviously the seconds are a lot cheaper). There are hundreds of bags of fleece for sale, and we need to move it. Some is from this year's shearing, some is from 2005 and 2006. If anyone is interested, please PM me and let me know your color preference and we can work out a price. We are willing to ship, we'd just have to calculate shipping costs.

    Thanks for looking! [​IMG]

    I need to discuss this w/my backyard neighbor, we are in chickens together and try to work on spinning Monday nights together. I'm definately interested even is she isn't right now, can never have enough, right? It all gets spun and used, too quickly!

    So far, I'm interested in the Med Rose Gray and the Med Silver Gray.
    (I've already got dark brown and she's got White)

    Thanks for posting this! I'll have to wait until she gets off work as she works for corrections- I'll be back!!!

    Quote:YES! Please! [​IMG] If you'd like, we can send you some samples if you pay the shipping. (Is it normal postage rates to Alaska?)
