To Wash or Not To Wash Your Alpaca Fiber - That Is the Question!
Like most things in life, the answer is it depends. What do you want to do with your alpaca fiber? How clean is your alpaca fiber already? Most alpaca spinners will wash their fiber first only if they are working with a really bright white fleece or they are planning to dye the fleece.
Otherwise, it’s much easier and faster to spin and or card unwashed fiber. On the flip side, who doesn't like to work with nice clean fluffy alpaca fiber!

Take care of the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willing, not grudgingly -- not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.
