Straight from the Alpaca?
Is there is a market for wool sheared from alpaca's? I have a friend with 2 alpacas and bags full of their wool!

Your friend (or you) should learn to spin! Alpaca makes wonderful yarn.

There are several spinning farms in Kentucky that may be able to help decide what to do with the fleece. Scroll about half way down for a list.

Does she want to sell it, I might buy it. I am learning to spin and could use the experience.
