Sell Your Fiber – Support Your Industry.

Our Back 40 develops, produces and sells yarn products which bring together the finest animal fiber produced in the U.S. with discerning customers who value its quality and provenance. All aspects of production are U.S-based, which allows us to support the local value chain between small farms and the consumers who prize their products.

Our first line, the cabled, worsted weight yarn Ne Plus Ultra Alpaca, demonstrates our commitment to sustaining the U.S. fiber community. It is made from the finest Huacaya alpaca, purchased fleece by fleece from small farms across the nation. It is processed in Alabama by The King’s Mill, which specializes in custom processing of fine animal fiber. We use Cushing’s Perfection Dyes, manufactured in Maine, for our kettle dyeing.

Our second line, the sport weight Royal Plush Alpaca, will be available to retailers starting Fall 2012. We know you’ll love its multicolored brilliance, its extraordinary softness and handle, and the way it knits together a community. Watch for it!
