One wonderful aspect of alpacas is the wide range of colors they naturally come in.
Alpaca Fibre Colour Chart
Australian Alpaca Fleece Limited (AAFL) fleece colour grades are set by the requirements of our customers for the products they make.
These may differ from the AAA animal registration colours. These colour grades are subject to change as manufacturers modify their products or as new markets are found.
Points to note in assessing fleece colour for processing: Some white fleeces contain individual brown or black fibres – these fleeces must be graded as light fawn or grey
Black fleeces with brown or lighter tips have to be graded as dark brown – only true black fleeces can be graded as black
Grey fleece with any brown will be graded as Rose Grey Because of the natural range of alpaca colours, some fleeces can vary between colour grades depending on the shade of the fleece
White fleeces grown in red soil areas may have to be graded as light fawn – this is due to the scouring process being unable to remove the red tipping.
