See "I Love Weaving Alpaca!"
By Nancy Kronenberg in Articles on Fiber
ALPACA MINING COMPANY, www.alpacamine.com - sister site to AlpacaMarket - welcomes you our new alpaca fiber web site. Our goal is to promote luxury alpaca fiber, its uses, the people who love using it, and limited numbers of items for sale, all made in the USA by our clients and fiber artist friends, at reasonable “gotta have it” prices. This is a site for all those who love the feel, versatility, and warmth of the fiber whether you are a spinner, weaver, felter, or simply a "wearer" looking for a beautiful and unique item in alpaca to enhance your wardrobe or home
One of the first things you will notice is our strong use of a Red/White/Blue Theme. identifying our firm belief in the fiber of the American Alpaca. You will discover all products offered are - Made in the USA. For many years most suppliers have only been able to offer imported product and garments, but with the increasing numbers of alpacas and resultant increased amount of alpaca fleece available from our own American backyard, that is no longer necessary. Since the first import of the alpaca from Chile back in 1984, its popularity as a livestock choice has grown and the people who love working with the fiber have learned to utilize its unique qualities to become ever more creative producing beautiful Made in the USA products.
Another goal of this site is to make it interactive and helpful to all alpaca lovers. If you are an alpaca fleece artisan, please send us your Want Ads, ideas, hints and tips for working with alpaca. This site is long overdue in being uploaded due to the illness of one of its creators, and Paul and Sands thank you for your patience and hope you will help us build a fun and useful site for alpaca enthusiasts.

"I got the fleeces today!!!! I was so excited to
see the mailman! They are so wonderful, my gosh! I
can't wait to start playing with them but I wanted
to e-mail you to let you know I got them. I also
wanted to share a photo of my Dachshund Peanut
Butter... I went to get the camera to take pics of
the fleece to send to my husband who is away for
pre-deployment training, and came back to Mr Peanut
laying in the fleece! He thinks I bought it for him!
My other dachshund tried to do the same but he can't
hop like Peanut, he did lay his head it though :) So
two out of two dachshunds agree that your fleeces
are amazing soft and wonderful ;)
Again thank you so much! Can't wait to use it up and get more from you!!" Kendra
