Thank you for buying this little bundle of raw alpaca fibre, straight from the fleeces of the friendly alpaca herd living on our family run farm in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
We don’t like any of our alpacas’ fleece to go to waste when we shear them once a year. So, anything that doesn’t make it to the mill, winds its way into the nests of birds up and down the country.
It’s the perfect nesting material. 100% natural, renewable and untreated, our alpaca wool repels water, dries quickly and, most importantly, is super soft and warm – meaning mother birds can create a cosy home for their chicks.
To use, separate and cut the material into strands (we want to make it as easy for the birds as possible), then place in a fat ball bird feeder and watch them fly away with it like they’ve just made a trip to IKEA.
There may be a little hay leftover from our alpacas rolling around – but not to worry, the birds can use that too!
