We have individual fleeces processed at The Border Mill which is lovingly and meticulously run by yet another John and Juliet. The Border Mill is a “mini-mill”, a small-scale alpaca fibre processing mill nestled in the beautiful Scottish Borders.
Many of our balls of yarn have the name of the alpaca who have provided the luxurious fleece on it. Our customers love to come and see the alpaca that gave us the fleece contentedly grazing on the field.
We are particularly fussy when grading our fleeces and use only the finest, softest fleece to process into yarn for knitting/crochet.
Our alpaca yarn is usually balled in 50g or 100g balls which we sell at £7.50 and £15 respectively for both 4ply and Double Knitting We also have 100g bags of rovings available for handspinners or felters.
