This batch of Natural FAST Fibre roving is the fleece from a herd of Huacaya Alpaca from Iris Lodge Alpacas in Jilliby on the NSW Central Coast, 10km from our shed. We have a selection of solid natural colours available.
FAST (Fibre Arts Shed Traceable) Fibre for Slow Craft is our initiative to make available to our customers locally grown and traceable wool and alpaca fibres. Sourced and processed by us in small batch runs at the Fibre Arts Shed on the NSW Central Coast, each collection will include as much information about the origin and breed of the fibres as we have. The fibre has been through a thorough washing process but may still contain a small amount of VM (vegetable matter, i.e., grass).
To support our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, we will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every lot of FAST Fibre to the Yerin Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Centre, which plays a vital role in our community. Yerin has been providing primary health care to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community on the Central Coast for more than 25 years
