Try this site: http://www.joyofhandspinning.com/

Look on the menu at the right. Discyussions on Alpaca, wool, silk etc.

They also have some great videos. I consider it the "knittinghelp" site of spinning :)

There is a book I have been wanting to pick up from Amazon called In Sheeps Clothing
It covers information on the different fibers produced by all the different breeds of sheep. There is also some infor on other animal fibers (alpaca, angora, etc) at www.joyofhandspinning.com
