Episode 091: Alpaca

In this episode, Anne takes a deep dive into alpaca, and all the other South American camelid fibers!

Links to Source Material and Things Mentioned in the Podcast

Much of the episode was based on personal experience working with alpaca fiber yarns and discussions I’ve had with camelid raisers and spinners I’ve met through the years, but the information was confirmed for me in the wonderful book, The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook.
Wikipedia also has excellent articles about vicuñaguanacoalpaca, and llama.
North American Paco-Vicuna Association


Both of the songs in this episode were by Raighes Factory. The first song was “Smiling You” and the second was “Path.”
