Sale of Fine Alpaca Fiber & Yarn
Alpacas come in 22 natural colors! The alpacas representing Platinum Alpaca’s fiber herd produce fine, high quality fleece that is easily marketable and in high demand.
By properly preparing all fleece before sending to a mill for yarn production to begin, the outside costs for fiber processing are kept to a minimum. We can supply natural colored yarns for sale at competitive prices. Look for it at a store or show in Virginia. The yarns produced by our alpacas are certified Virginia’s FinestTM.
Sale of Alpaca Finished Products
Customers love to wear alpaca clothing! There are specific attributes that make alpaca fiber more valuable than that of other fiber producing animals. Outdoor enthusiasts know that apparel made from hollow core fiber tends to be lightweight and much warmer than solid core equivalents. Alpaca fiber has hypoallergenic properties as well as softness, making alpaca garments comfortable – even for very sensitive skin.
Our farm is open by appointment throughout the year, and for local seasonal events. Visitors can purchase alpacas, a sheared fleece, natural or dyed skeins of yarn and alpaca products. If you would like further information, please contact us.
