Since 1997, NEAFP has processed over a million pounds of U.S. Grown Alpaca fiber. By working together with thousands of Alpaca Farms + dozens of domestic textile mills, NEAFP is able to help farms of all sizes maximize the value of the fiber they produce, making their businesses that much more sustainable.


Our Mission

The New England Alpaca Fiber Pool (NEAFP) was founded in 1997 by 3 Alpaca Farmers with one simple idea: in order for the blossoming U.S. Alpaca Livestock industry to be sustainable - farms needed a commercial scale value-add outlet that did not depend on over seas manufacturing or competing at global commodity pricing.

Starting in 2002, Chris and Shelley Riley of Golden Touch Alpaca Farm, proudly continue the legacy of the 3 original NEAFP founders. By utilizing economies of scale, Alpaca Farms pool their fiber together to gain access into commercial scale U.S. Textile Mills. This allows them to bring a wide variety of quality clothing and accessories to market - reaching the widest possible audience - at the highest possible profit margin.

Alpaca Farms of any size are able to offer 60+ finished U.S. Alpaca products to their local communities without having to navigate commercial textile mill minimums, juggling production schedules, or managing the inherit risk of getting a new product off the ground from prototype to production.
