Happiness is---- a BLISS RANCH ALPACA AND MERINO!
My name is Carol Bliss and I own and manage BLISS RANCH ALPACAS & MERINOS and have a country store here on the ranch named, BLISS RANCH WOOL's. I have been in the wool / fiber business for almost 30 years. I started out with sheep, and soon relized that I needed the finest wooled sheep possible, so I got into Merinos. Merinos grow the finest wool in the world. It soon became evident that I needed finer Merinos, not being able to simply go out there and buy finer ones, (there were none out there) I had to develop them myself. And that I did. After many years of selective breeding and culling, I now breed the finest micron Merinos in the United States, they range from 14-16 microns, (as fine as spider webbing) I have started many other breeders in the fine wool business, including Julie Skinner of Sand Point, Idaho, (many years ago). Julie is a top breeder of fine fleeced Alpacas in the U.S. I, in turn got my start in Alpacas from her. I continue to breed and sell Merinos and their fleeces here on the ranch.
Here I go again, about 5 years ago, I decided to add Alpacas to my fiber business, to complement my Merinos. Since Alpacas are so much more costly, I had to start out with animals, with not quite as fine a fiber as I desired, so I'm breeding them up in fiber finess and quality. I can advise and help you start up too. I have animals for sale that anyone can afford and some of the top bred studs to breed them to. I raise both Huacayas and Suris. I have had judges tell me that my Suris are too fine, Hooray! I'm on the right track! If you just follow the trend, excellence is hard and slower to acheive. After all, these are fiber producing animals. Please call me for an appointment to visit the Ranch and see the animals. 970-667-0208, evenings are the best time to call.
