Raw fiber customer May 2012:
alpaca is definitely better quality from any of the other I've
purchased in the past. They are all beautiful colors and the fibers are
amazingly fine, so it is difficult to choose just one."

"I've just spun up an art batt that Mary had for sale at Distaff Day in
Colorado Springs and it is gorgeous! Turquoises (light and dark), red
violets, black, and all of it alpaca soft!"

April 2012 comment by Kris Jaeger, Owner of Unyunga, crochet pattern designer, precision spinner:
Kris bought both the fine fiber of our girls Kimi-Sue and Rosie as well as several art batts and dyed rovings. She has appreciated of the colors in our art batts and we have much appreciation of her skill in spinning and crocheting the fiber into her beautiful works. Below are pictures of one such lovely shawl, which incorporated our brilliantly colored art batts and rovings.
