Good luck, that sounds like a massive project. I'd love to hear more about the process as well as see pics of what you do with all that fiber.

If you work at it a little at a time then you can have some fiber at each stage and switch off between tasks to prevent boredom. Still - it sounds like you've enough to keep yourself busy for quite a while!

Where did you get such a grand volume? A local farm, craft place, co-op?

i got this fleece from a lady in AZ. She place a ad in the group Fleece for Sell. The ad said Free Alpaca fleece come and pick it up... whatever u want these are the adult Alpaca fleece. so i e-mail her and ask her could she send it to me and she yes and the only thing i had to do where pay for shipment....
