NEAFP not attending Southern Select

It pains us to let everyone know we will not be in attendance @ the Southern Select Show in Tennessee this weekend. On the way to the show yesterday our truck's differential broke down in Maryland and will be there until Thursday of next week getting repaired. We apologize greatly to everyone this has affected. All orders that were meant to be delivered to the show will ship out for free on Monday. We hope everyone had a safe travel day in the weather to the show and makes it home safely at the end of the weekend!

Winter Storm Juno Expected Delays 1/26 - 1/29 2015


We received 2+ feet of snow Monday night through Wednesday morning but are happy to report we are back open today 1/29/2015. We will be working through the orders that built up over the last few days and will begin shipping again today.

All of New England and much of New York are still under snow so there may be some shipping delays due to the storm.

2014 Holiday Schedule


Blizzard of '78

Thank you all for another record breaking year in fiber coming in and U.S. alpaca products going out to farms across the country. The year over year growth you're experiencing on the individual level is reverberating throughout the rest of the industry. We are very grateful for your support and look forward to growing with you in the years to come.

Happy Holidays,

Chris and Shelley Riley
& the entire NEAFP Team!

Survival - Large back on website


Survival - Large back on website Our first batch of Survival Socks - Size Large arrived yesterday and are in the process of being finished and labeled now. They are back on the website and can be ordered.

Socks on back order will begin shipping out this afternoon (12/17) in the order they were placed.

New orders placed today will begin shipping out Thursday, 12/18 in chronological order.

There is a very high demand for these socks and we will be working as fast as humanly possible to get them on their way to you. Please keep this in mind while placing your orders. As our initial shipment is limited, we may reduce the amount ordered for the next couple of days to ensure we can get these socks in as many farm's hands as possible. There are several more pallets on their way to us and our inventory will be back to normal by the beginning of next week.


Thank you very much and Happy Holidays!

NEAFP speaking at Camelid Community Fiber as Business Conference


Chris of NEAFP will be speaking at the upcoming Camelid Community's Fiber as Business Conference this August 9th and 10th in Wooster, Ohio.

Head to the website to learn more about the conference and register

More info about the event:

“Fiber as Business” Conference Offers Options to Camelid Owners

As both alpaca and llama farms have begun to take more interest in the fiber side of raising their animals, many are confused about where to start. If you are wondering how to generate an income flow from all that gorgeous fiber walking around in your pasture, Camelid Community’s “Fiber as Business” conference August 9–10 can provide you with the tools you need to make some money with your fiber. Based on Camelid Community’s earlier survey, we know many llama and alpaca owners are eager to do just that.

Held at the Shisler Center in Wooster, Ohio, the conference will answer questions such as: What can I do with my fiber? How can I do it? Now that I’ve got something, how do I make money with it? After I make money, how do I keep the IRS happy? In short, you will learn the whole process from what to do after you shear your animals all the way to how to put your fiber profits in the bank and not give it all to the IRS.

We want to provide fleece producers throughout the camelid industry the information they need in order to benefit from the services currently available in the industry. We know one size doesn’t fit all and are confident the range of options presented during the weekend will help you find the possibilities that might work for you. We want you to be able to create your own fiber business plan no matter how large or small and no matter what type of alpacas or llamas you have. - Full Press Release
