Joy Smith's Profile
I have been raising Suri Alpacas since 1999 in Ohio. I enjoy working with the fiber from these beautiful animals as much as I enjoy the daily chores of caring foralpacas. I joined Esty to offer some of these luxury fiber to other like minded artest and crafters. All of the fiber can be purchased raw, no washing or carding, washed, I use a very gentle organic soap, or carded. There are always bits of vegatation in the fiber as these animals live in a barn, and Ohio gets cold in winter so they be in plenty of straw, that sticks to the fiber.
I shear each year in April, and the fiber is stored in bags until I have time to skirt it. Sometimes when a blanket is lying on the skirting table a cat may take a nap on it. So if you are allergic to cats or dogs, horses or chickens, please be careful.
