Description

Roving , 50% white alpaca and 50% white Cormo sheep, this is a lovely, soft roving that will spin, felt, and dye beautifully.

This roving is a collaboration of two shepherdresses. My alpacas here in midMichigan and Mary Parks' cormo sheep in Pleasantville, Iowa. (Still Water Fiber Farm - https://www.facebook.com/StillwaterFiberFarm).

Zeilinger's mill in Frankenmuth, Michigan, cleaned and prepared this gorgeous roving for me. We were a little concerned that it might break up and have noils because the fleeces were so soft. It did break a little. In the last picture, I tried to show you some.

I like to add a fine wool to my alpaca because it adds memory and bounce to spun yarn. Sometimes 100% alpaca yarn might stretch out when worn. Not always though. I've found that if the alpaca fleece has lots of crimp, it will retain it's shape (memory).

$4 / ounce

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Most buyers purchase from my shop using PayPal or Etsy's Direct Check. These are easiest for me. But if you rather send a check or money order, that's fine too.
Fiber folks must be conscientious and dependable because I have never had a bad transaction. If you need time to pay or have to cancel a purchase, just let me know. I'm naievely trusting and trustworthy.

Returns & exchanges

If you aren't happy, let me know. I will do an exchange or give your money back, or whatever it takes to have a happy customer. Buying fiber is hard from a picture. Ideally, you need to feel, caress, and, yes, even smell it.

Please let me know if you have allergies to fragrances because I store my fiber with lavender sachets. I can rewash the yarn before I send it out.
