The North American Suri Company offers cash for your fiber! And even better, for 2021/22, we are paying for shipping regardless of weight. Here is how it works:
Let us know when you have your fiber boxed and ready to send (be sure to click on the Fiber Submission sub tab to print out the proper forms to accompany your fiber). Tell us the dimensions of each box and the weight of each box. We create labels, send them to you, and you take the boxes to the nearest FedEx location for mailing. It's that simple. NOTE: for 2021, there are weight and box dimension limitations per box as follows:
Weight Max per box: 49 lbs
Dimension Max per box: Length + 2xWidth +2xHeight must be equal to or less than 104" AND Length cannot exceed 48" and the second longest side cannot exceed 30".
Failure to follow these guidelines may result in a surcharge fee being deducted from your final pay out!
We typically grade once a year, in early October, and pay you based on the poundage per grade. Our prices change every May 1st based on the demand we see for our product over the next year. You do not need to skirt and in fact, we encourage you to leave the fleeces alone once they are in the bags, as it makes our grading process go much more quickly.
NOTE: For 2021/22, we will be making "calls" for fiber as orders from customers are placed. Currently, we have a need for neck, leg, and belly fiber in white, beige, and fawn. Additionally, we have a need for grades 4/5/6 in blanket fiber for white, beige, fawn and black. We will not be grading for this call, and as such, we are passing on the grading cost savings to you. Please see the pricing tab for further details. Also, be sure to properly label each bag with the grade or type (i.e. "Grade 5" or "leg and belly", etc). Lastly, we are working on solidfying another customer who will have different, and additive requirements, so stay tuned as we will likely be doing another fiber call later in the year. In the meantime, we need your white, beige, and fawn fiber, so send it in!!!
The North American Suri Company strives to pay the best price for your fiber. We are growers ourselves and we understand that there is a cost to producing the best Suri fleece. But, the ability to reap a profit from your fiber falls not only with the buyer, but also with the grower. We can only pay as much as the market will support. As such, the responsibility to produce more fiber per animal, and better quality fiber per animal must be borne by the grower. If you are interested in making more money from each animal, we encourage you to check out our Grower Tools sub tab which provides articles and tips for setting your own breeding goals.
We thank you for your interest in The North American Suri Company and look forward to Working with you in the future!
