I’m Deb Griffey of Alpaca Time, a small business that has built a reputation of manufacturing premium alpaca products since 2005.
Alpacas are shorn for their soft, warm fibre once a year. After my sister had her alpacas shorn, she called the only fibre mill in Ontario that processed alpaca fibre and found that it would be at least eight months before they could turn her raw fibre into yarn. When the shock wore off, she decided we should start a fibre mill. I said, “Give me 15 minutes with a calculator and I’ll show you there’s no money in this.” A week later I was still playing with the calculator saying “This could work”.
