Young castrated male fiber

Asked August 4, 2019, 10:23 PM EDT

I'm looking to purchase a two-and-a-half-year-old castrated male alpaca. They had him castrated at 7 months. Should I be concerned about fiber quality? I want to use his fiber for spinning

There appears to be no difference in fiber quality between male and female alpacas, intact or otherwise. Genetics and individual animal health have more influence on the fiber quality.
