The fleeces came back in 3 batches of roving: a reddish-brown huacaya alpaca, a tan/grey llama, and a black llama/suri alpaca blend.
The red-brown huacaya alpaca roving is from Ralph. Ralph is my pathetic little alpaca with all sorts of problems (scoliosis, short tail, etc.), but he has a great personality and pretty nice fiber. He doesn't produce as much as most alpacas seem to though, I normally only get 2-3lbs of prime fiber. His roving is extremely crimpy and soft, with absolutely no vegetable matter! Priced at $3.00/oz.
