Located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, Alpaca Fibre is the brand of the lot building operation of Kobler Alpacas which came about as a result of their shearing service. πŸ¦™βœ‚οΈ Many customers were either storing their fleece in the shed from one year to the next or disposing of it as a by-product of owning Alpacas. In 2013 the early foundations were set for the current operation with unwanted fleece of shearing customers being collected along with suitable fibre from their clip, sorted and sold. Over the years, the business has grown and proven its ability to supply both quality and volume, selling alpaca fibre of many different grades all over the world.

Alpaca Fibre pride themselves in knowing that they supply a sought after quality product globally and create a more sustainable Australian Alpaca Industry πŸ¦™πŸŒ They have a large network of Alpaca farms that ensure they can supply raw fibre in volume and their unique way of processing the suppliers fleece ensures the exact provenance of each bale can be provided and meet demands across the colour spectrum.
