Community Fleece Collection

We all have fleece to deal with in the alpaca business.  We have many options.  We can send fleeces to various mini mills or cottage industries. There are organizations such as the Alpaca Blanket Project, the Alpaca Fiber Co-Op of North America and many others.
Sometimes the options may seem overwhelming.  The cost of shipping the fleeces to be processed may exceed any benefit.  Organizations such as the Alpaca Blanket Project and the Alpaca Fiber Co-op of North America have recognized this and have set up collection sites and will ship anything over 500 lb for free.

That is why we are setting up this collection day.  It is easy to join AFCNA.  You can join as a Class A stockholder or a Class B.  Either way, you can contribute fiber and can benefit from it.  Check it out at their web site:           Alpaca Fiber Co-op of North America 

We will be sponsoring a fiber collection on October 5.  Please bring your blankets only.  They do not need to be skirted, but if they are that is OK.  They should be at least 2 inches long and should be fairly clean of vegetation and should be free of sticker burrs.  
We already have about 500# of blanket and shipping will be covered by AFCNA.

Hope to see you there!
