Alpaca Blanket Project Releases August Newsletter

The following is the latest newsletter from The Alpaca Blanket Project:

Fiber Collection Update and More!     August 12, 2013

We are making a road trip to Ohio to collect fiber on September 13 & 14! Look for us at Hobby Horse Farm in Wadsworth OH and Blue Heaven Alpacas in Madison, OH!  If you are interested in dropping off fiber at either site, please drop us an e-mail to help us plan our trip.

We also have a collection site lined up in California!  Thank you to XC Alpacas in Galt California!

August is "Do Something With Your Fiber" Month!

Our friends at Stargazer Ranch in Loveland, CO have decided that August is "Do Something With Your Fiber Month"!  What a great idea!  They will be collecting through August 25th.

Remember, fiber must be received in early September if you want to receive payment in 2013.  Get your fiber skirted and sent to us by then, and you'll have your check before Christmas.

You can check our website for a collection site near you.  We are currently collecting in 14 states, and most sites are still accepting fiber. Drop us an e-mail if you still need a fiber collection ticket with your farm information pre-printed on it.

Sorting Update   

Paul has finished sorting most of the black & grey fiber we've collected so far, and is working on the other colors now.

Please note:  this year, your sorting reports will be sent out via e-mail. We will start sending them out in the next few weeks, so please watch your e-mail box!

Socks?

ABP has been supplying fiber to a manufacturer of alpaca socks here in the USA.  We are currently conducting a survey to see if members would like socks added to our inventory of products that you can buy at member prices.  
Please click on this link to take a brief survey and share your thoughts.

If you need to order blankets or scarves, please give Paul a call at 608-669-6651.

This is the Shasta blanket, which is a lovely white blanket that work well in many decors.  Farm Days is coming up next month, and visitors love to see (and buy) finished products made from YOUR alpaca fiber!

The "Members Only" page contains the records for fiber submitted from 2010-2012.  You do not need to access this page unless you have submitted fiber in these years.  Moving forward, we are going to e-mail sorting reports directly to you and this page will be take down.
