I have a friend who is in Kansas and she and her husband have a small little herd of five alpacas. She says she has some of last and this year's sheering.
Let me know if you are interested in purchasing any. From what my wife told me, nothing has been cleaned or prepared. It would be the raw sheering. She is going to be charging $5/pound plus shipping. Each blanket is about 3.4 pounds. She says that is less than what others are charging for raw, uncleaned.

Here is the text of her message.
"Here are a few pictures of the alpacas. I don't have any more pictures. I can take pics of them separately, but now they have short fiber. I'll enclose a pic of a couple of them with short fiber. They look thin with their haircuts.
The colors are white, light fawn, medium fawn, medium brown, and true black.
"What I would sell are the blankets. Meaning, the back and side fiber of the alpaca. That's the good prime stuff. We also do have what is called "seconds". That is shorter fiber from the belly and neck and legs.
"When it’s cooler out, I'll go look in the storage and get samples of the fibers."
