Thank you so much, @dlschuch! I'm extremely picky, and I feel that my customers deserve quality for the amount they're paying. I'm actually not making much of a profit if you count in the hours I spend on it, but since I'm just starting out that's ok for now
And thank you, @Summer! I remember that post, and I've read it thoroughly more than once I have a whole lot of alpaca coming soon, and I'm excited to start processing it. I like the idea of having some browns & black that are natural/undyed. Alpaca doesn't have lanolin (grease) like goats and sheep, and I love the texture of the hair.
I still have a couple people from the original waiting list who have hair in progress. I have not forgotten about you-- I just don't want to scrimp on quality at all for the sake of time. So a heads up also for new waiting list folks, because I'm completing them in order. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
