I use the fiber from my own alpacas. It is sheared, washed, carded, dyed, and carded again to make sure it is nice and fluffy! I do everything by hand. The orange and yellow are from my white alpaca. The pretty gold is from my fawn alpaca. It was really cool to see how the same dye colored the white and fawn. I love how gold the fawn came out! This is a nice set to use for making Christmas things and felting. Great for angel hair and ornaments.
