News

 April 2017

With shearing about to commence for 2017 may we wish you all a stress free shearing and long fleeces. Especially suri fleece. For 2017 We will pay a premium for suri fleece above 10 inch staple.

 

4th July 2016

The year is off to a fantastic start with new clients contacting us on a daily basis. We have already had 5000kg through the sorting shed. Despite lower prices across the world we are managing to maintain prices for your fleece. This is our busiest time so get in touch early to ensure your fleece is collected.

Alpaca Fleece Buying Guide Prices

The below prices are a guide only. When buying alpaca fleece, some attract higher prices than those we advertise here. We are interested in large quantites and these large quantities can attract higher prices. It is in the interest of the sellers to combine fleeces prior to our buying days to obtain better prices.

 We cannot take any lots contaminated with moth or rodent infestation.

We will sample your fleece bags for weight and quality prior to buying. We will then work out a price for you there and then based on the below table. Factors such as mileage, quantity and quality all play a part in our final judgement of the price we can offer. We will always try and give you the best price for your fleece and provide you with reasons for the price offered.

 

We also offer a service of fleece collection, grading and full assessment which can result in higher prices than those obtained from payment on collection. This service is at the sellers request but will inevitably delay the time taken to receive payment.

 

Please see our mohair page for mohair prices.
