For the love of all that is holy, please tell me there are some spinners out there. We have 8 alpacas who are sheared once a year, which means we have a plethora of hair. We're new to this whole fiber thing, and none of us know how to clean it, spin it, and whatever else comes with it. We also have 31 cashmere goats (most of whom are apparently preggers), but since we live in toasty South Florida, they tend to produce very little cashmere. Needless to say, we have raw fiber coming out of our ears and we can't seem to be able to get rid of the stuff. I would love to learn how to spin someday, but I just don't have the time right now. Is there anyone who would be interested in buying some of this luxurious raw fiber (it apparently blends well with cashmere and/or angora)?

Thanks!

You could have it processed into roving. The other option is to join a co-op. Not sure if the New England alpaca co-op is still in existence.
