Integrity Alpacas & Fiber
Integrity Alpacas & Fiber, established in 2013, has grown from the original 4 alpacas to just over 40 in the herd today. Our herd composition supports a focus on producing fine white fibers for use in both the commercial textile industry and flexibility for local artisans use.
Integrity Alpacas & Fiber processes some fiber into yarn. Options include yarns of natural color, 100% alpaca, and some blends with complementing natural fibers from Fibershed members. Available products created from the herd include alpaca felted soap, dryer balls, hand-crocheted and woven scarves. The goods produced by our herd continues to expand.
The herd also produces ample “golden beans” for use in your garden/farm to support soil health.
