Raw Alpaca Fibers

Raw Alpaca Fleece from SageRidge Mill & Critters

Raw Alpaca Fiber right off our stock!  This fiber is great for do-it-yourself projects from spinning and knitting to felting and stuffing! We take great pride in our animals and we make every effort to shear them with that same pride. What that means to you is very few second cuts in our raw fleeces and minimal vegetable matter! If our fleeces are really messy, we gift them to the birds!


This fiber is shorn directly off the animal once a year in May. It is NOT washed or carded. It is skirted and bagged into one pound bags for sale to You!


We have colors in many natural shades of White, Fawn, Brown, Black, Grey and mixed color bags. Please let us know which colors you prefer with your order.  If you need a specific color tone (ie.  light brown, medium brown, dark brown, etc)  of one of these fibers, please.... convo me!  Please, be aware that coarse grade fiber is a mix of legs, necks and bellies and my not be "pure" color of one kind.  This grade becomes mixed in bags during shearing, we do the best we can to sort it out later.  Fine and medium grade fleeces are all bagged separately so those colors are pure to each animal!


We grade our fiber into fine grade (ooooohhhh that is sooo soft!), medium grade (all other blankets that are 1.5" or longer), coarse grade (legs, necks, bellies and short blankets) and suri blankets.


We sell our raw fiber by the pound. If you need less than a pound of fiber at a time, please call us at 307-217-2594 or email me at sageridgeranchwyo@gmail.com and see what we have to offer by the ounce!

Washed Alpaca Fiber of fine, medium or coarse grade great for do-it-yourself projects from hand carding for art batts or spinning or felting or even just for stuffing and bird nests!  The possibilities with fiber are almost endless!  


We take great pride in our animals and we make every effort to shear them with that same pride. This fiber is shorn, skirted, and washed for you already.  


Fine grade is:  ooooooohhhhh so soft!, medium grade are: the rest of the herds blanket fiber and can vary quite a bit but GREAT fiber and even lengths,  coarse grade are: the seconds (necks) and thirds (legs and bellies) off of our alpacas, sometimes in the coarse grade the colors are mixed when we shear.  This fiber tends to be quite coarse and isn't considered suitable to wear next to your skin.  It is however, cheap and softer than expected!   If our fleeces are really messy, we gift them to the birds!

Alpaca Rocks

Felted Alpaca Rocks at SageRidge Mill & Critters

These are "rocks" made from 100% alpaca fiber.  They are irregular and fun!  Some have tufts sticking out.  


I have 5 dogs and they all love them.  They are easy to catch and pick up, easy to carry around and chew on.  They take a LOT of work to chew them apart.... and then it is all just fiber bits, nothing dangerous.


They also make cute decorative "rocks" and they will work as Dryer Balls!
