AlpacaExpress purchases both Huacaya and Suri fleece in all colours.
Once fleeces are dropped off to Alpaca Express, they are assessed, skirted and classed into lines of 2 micron increments according to buyers specifications.
We encourage breeders to supply all of their alpaca fibre not just the saddles as we can class it into saleable lines.
For current fleece purchase prices producers should email :
Fleece Preparation Requirements
To ensure the quality of supply and to maximise returns to producers Alpaca Express requires all supplied fleece to be properly skirted and free of vegetable matter.
To assistwith this Alpaca Express encourages all producers to attend appropriate fleece preparation workshops (click here) and also encourages saddle first shearing to avoid cross contamination of fibre.
For quality saddle fleeces we encourage 3 point combined testing to provide a better representation of the whole saddle, although mid side sample test results are sufficient from a professional provider, such as Micronman, or we can provide testing facility in house.
