About Our Store

Here you will find fleece…lots and lots of fleece, some from recent shearing and some fleece from previous years. The year mentioned in the description of each fleece represents which spring that fleece was sheared. Over the years, I have come to realize that washing alpaca fleece is about as fun as doing dishes the old fashioned way! However, I have also learned that it must be done, and it must be done well, before the fleece can be used or properly stored. About a year ago my hubby (and partner in crime) designed and built a fantastic fleece tumbler. Using the tumbler combined with a leaf blower, I have developed a system of cleaning that is not only effective, but involves a bit of fun. Tumbled and washed fleece is a new item in our store, available in half pound bags. I’m also offering carded fleece in 4 ounce packages, and 4 ounce bundles of mill processed roving. Be sure to check the listings to see what’s available. Take a glance at the soaps and soap dishes while you’re there. Thank you for looking into what’s for sale at Shadow Ranch.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you can return it for a full refund within 90 days. Please examine your fleece when it first arrives. Your comments and suggestions are always appreciated.
