Fiber Submission to NEAFP
PurelyAlpaca has partnered with numerous USA mills to process fiber for USA made alpaca products as part of our ongoing Fiber Call program. http://purelyalpaca.com/fibercall
To submit fiber to NEAFP and receive payment in the form of PurelyAlpaca.com "PacaBucks" in-store vouchers, please email us the the information needed so we can fill in the form below in the NEAFP system:
We will use your information to make Fiber Submission Slips which we will send back to you to print and put in the large bags. One slip per large bag (inside a box) to be mailed.
You might want to keep track of which bag will get which Deposit Slip.
Once the Deposit Slips are added, send Fiber to:
115 N Seventh St
Fall River, MA 02720
Some tips for sending in alpaca fiber to NEAFP for "PacaBucks" credit:
1) NEAFP does not require fleece to be sorted. Save yourself some time there but please do not submit flawed fleeces with vegetable matter, POO or other major contaminates.
2) Small bags of individual fleeces/grades should be combined into larger plastic bags. Contractor Bags, Yard Waste Bags, and 55 Gallon Drum Liners work best. This then is put in a big box to mail. If you end up with over 100 lbs of total fiber, we can help you get it shipped by Freight, which is cheaper.
3) Each large plastic bag submitted should contain a copy of your Fiber Bank Deposit Slip. This is needed to establish your credit for the fleece. We will email the Deposit Slips to be printed and put in the large bags prior to mailing them to NEAFP.
4) Please be sure to let us know at PurelyAlpaca when you send your fiber to NEAFP (preferably by email email@example.com).
Let us know if you have any questions (please review our FiberCall form as it covers a lot of points) and thank you for helping to support the development of the American Alpaca Industry!
