2017 Fiber Purchase Program

1. Get Paid for your Fiber ASAP

Our goal is to cut a check for all qualifiying fiber within 8 weeks of it reaching our mill for review by mail or drop off. Fiber being submitted through a regional collection point or show will have a slower turn around based on the sorting queue and total transit time to NEAFP.

 

2. Support US Alpaca

Alpaca farms across the USA have been turning to the fiber side of their business. Their businesses are growing faster than their herds and need more quality U.S. grown alpaca fiber to enter the domestic manufacturing chain to meet this growing demand.
3. 1st Come, 1st Serve

Our projections for 2017 call for an additional 25,000 lbs of alpaca fiber. The faster your fiber arrives at our warehouse for review, the faster our sorters can work through it & issue payment. Quality fiber sitting in barns collecting dust or moths hurts your farm and the fiber industry so put your fiber to work.

Fiber Requirements and Payout

 

For 2017, NEAFP's buying fiber that meets the following requirements:

  • U.S. Grown Huacaya Blanket Fiber Only
  • Fiber Diameter of 28μ micron and under
  • Staple Length: 2" to 5"
  • Overall Uniformity (Minimal Coarse Guard Hair & Short Cuts)
  • Free of Contamination (Vegetable Matter, Mold, Mildew, Moths etc.)
Farms submitting fiber meeting these requirements will receive between $3 and $4 per pound. The total per lb will be based on overall quality determined by NEAFP sorters. Acceptance and overall quality will be decided on these main criteria: Average Fiber Diameter, % of Strong Primary Fibers (Guard Hair), Staple Length, and overall uniformity.
