Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Visit me & my alpacas in the Alpaca Ontario booth @ Woodstock Outdoor Farm Show, Thurs Sept 15, and you'll see the fabulous products we make from there fibre.

Alpacas produce one of the world’s most luxurious natural fibres, much sought after by textile manufacturers, fashion designers and hand-spinners. It is made into men’s and women’s clothing, luxury apparel, coats, sweaters and decor items. Alpaca fleece is softer, warmer, and stronger than sheep’s wool and is considered a luxury fibre on the world market. It is non-greasy, and many people who cannot wear wool can comfortably wear alpaca.
