Quality

We do use micron measurement of fibre in our flock and herd but do not sample every animal every year.  Where possible, we provide an approximate micron classification based on the most recent data that we have.  Please note that we feel that the "hand" of a fibre is a better overall measure of quality.

Quality

Hand

Approx. Micron

Angelhair (aka Royal Baby, Ultra) Extremely soft hand; no prickle, airy feel   Under 20
Alpaca Cria (Baby) Very soft hand; no prickle, downy feel   20 - 24
Alpaca (Adult) Soft hand; some sensitive skin will prickle, smooth feel 24.1 - 26
Shetland Lamb or Shetland Neck Soft hand; some sensitive skin will prickle 24 - 28
Shetland (Adult) Medium Soft hand; sensitive skin will prickle   26 - 30
Stronger Shetland or Alpaca  (aka Outdoor) Medium hand, does have prickle, fairly smooth feel   28.1 - 32
Utility   (aka Rug) Rougher hand, definite prickle,    Over 32

You can obtain a sample of any of our fleeces, rovings, sliver or top by sending us a request along with a self addressed envelope and a cheque or money order for $2.50.
