Spinning alpaca wool

Postby EllsBells » Fri Jul 29, 2011 4:44 pm

Hello, I am very new to this site and after some advice.

We have 5 alpaca at home and last year we sent the wool off to be spun, we got 107 balls back and it cost £1000!! Is this too much? All my parent really wanted was a nice pair of shooting socks!!!

Is there anyone is the Essex/Suffolk area that would be able to do it cheaper? I love alpaca wool but it just seems so expense and thats before we have had anything made.

Thank you for looking, all help and advice much appreciated.

I've no idea, but you could contact Stour Valley Alpacas and ask their advice :)
