Regional Collection Points


Each year alpaca farms volunteer to be regional fiber drop-offs so area farms can get their fiber out of the field and into production.

Compared to farms mailing small lots of fiber individually, utilizing regional collections is a more economically feasible option.

NEAFP will arrange transportation for the collected fiber once the drop-off window has closed.

Our goal is to open regional collections around the country wherever there is enough demand.


2022 Regional Collection

Acceptable Fiber:

Huacaya and Suri: Blanket, Neck, & Upper Leg



 2022 Regional Collection Transportation Fee

To help offset growing transportation costs, we are implementing a $10 transportation fee per 50 lbs submitted using Regional Collection Points.

Fiber Transportation Fee Rate Example Table

(based on incoming weight)

1 to 50 lbs = $10

51 to 100 lbs = $20

101 to 150 lbs = $30

151 to 200 lbs = $40

The transportation fee applies to incoming weight and will be invoiced to each farm once their fiber has been sorted through by NEAFP.

The transportation fee will help offset the growing costs of running the collections and give us the resources to expand them in the future.

The Fiber Transportation Fee is waived for all host farms running regional collections and fiber drop-offs.

Shipping Fiber directly to NEAFP

All fiber shipped to NEAFP must be properly identified with either a Fiber Bank Deposit slip, Fiber Purchase Program Slip, or the Order Invoice the fiber is allocated to.

This way we can get your fiber sorted and checked into your account as fast as possible

Shipping Address (Commercial):


115 N. Seventh St.

Fall River, MA 02720


In our experience, the two best options for shipping fiber are USPS and UPS.

For packages under 25 lbs, USPS - Priority or Retail Ground are the most affordable options with the current DIM Weight changes implemented by all major parcel shippers.

To get the very best price on USPS, we recommend you create your shipping label through the USPS website and print it at home. This will also allow you to skip the line at the post office or arrange for it to be picked up.

For larger fiber shipments over 25 lbs and containing several boxes, UPS Ground becomes more economical but it is important for every farm to explore their options and find the very best bang for their buck.

With the changes to dimensional weight factoring into the shipping cost, it's critical to reduce the volume of your shipment by compressing your fiber.

All excess air should be removed from each fiber bag to reduce the size of your box as much as physically possible.

Each box mailed in should be practically bursting at the seams, just be sure to reinforce the edges so it makes it during transit.
