I think so -- I've most often seen alpaca top run $2-ish per ounce.

If it's clean and ready to spin, yes. If it's raw fleece, it's a little 'spensive.

Is it #1 (blanket) or is it #2 (neck & upper legs)? If it's #1, then it is a terrific price.

Is it raw fiber or is it roving or a slyver? (all are spinnable)

Here is a link to what I want...I got my spindle and merino from her, she's really nice. Don't y'all dare buy that up! IT's ready to spin already!
