Soft alpaca yarn in a great color. Thanks so much for shipping so fast too!
Alpaca fiber is the new luxury!
Via Verde Farm started 6 years ago with six huacaya alpacas. Since then the farm now raises over 20 beautiful alpacas ranging from white to dark silver gray. Alpaca is one of the finest and versatile of natural fibers. Via Verde Farm has a range of natural colors in raw or spun fiber to choose from. We take pride in our fiber and take great care that is a product of quality. Plus our alpacas are so darn cute!!

Tamara Miller is an alpaca herder, hand spinner and entrepreneur. As a French Literature major she never thought she would be running a farm much less up to her elbows in alpaca fiber. See updates about the farm on twitter@viaverdefarm
My pacas are kept in clean paddocks and I do my utmost to keep debris out of their fiber. After all, they are animals and love to take a dust bath or roll in on the ground to scratch a pesky itch. Sometimes the inevitable vm clings to their fiber. I do skirt all of the fleeces and take my time doing so. I strive for very clean fleeces but vm happens!
BATTS: I card my batts on my Louet Jr. It holds about 1.1 oz per batt. Each batt collection I have ranges from 3-3 oz batts or 4-3 oz batts. I am a spontaneous carder and prefer to lay out the fiber and just grab. A batt collection contains all the same ingredients but not necessarily in the same order. I suggest when spinning the batts that you do so by pulling strips off of each batt and spin in a random order. Most of my batts are textured and will not give you a smooth spin.
ANGELINA: I have a lot of angelina on stock and you may request more than the quantity I have listed. Let me know if you wish for more of a specific color.
CARPET/MAT Care: The carpets and mats are durable but still need a bit of care. Each carpet is uniquely crafted from 100% alpaca fiber. The fiber is harvested and skirted in Michigan. All of our carpets are one of a kind.
Care: Spot clean with tepid water and a sponge. Please line dry. To prolong the use of the rug, do not dry clean or toss in the washing machine.
Thank you for visiting my store.
