Moving into a dorm in about a month, and I realized I cant take all this with me- I can either trade or sell, so pm me if you are interested.

White Wool- Rommey, same stuff that Ive been spinning up for my shop lately. Rommey is nice and fuzzy with shine. This stuff is minimally processed, meaning it has been washed to remove most of the lanolin but not all. It also has some VM (vegetable matter) in is, but this comes out easily with further prep or jsut with spinning. Can be spun directly from the lock with no further Prep. Asking 1.25 an ounce to sell or same value for trade. (5 lbs available for trade)

Alpaca- soft and recently sheared, (note there may be some mixing of colors as it is altogther in a box, and this is just a general representaion of the colors. All colors may have some medium brown in them) Alapca is quite warm and can felt. You can work with alapca directly from the fleece as is or comb it a bit to get some of the dust out. Very little VM. 1.50/ounce
darks- black, dark brown, chestnut, browns, etc. (2 lbs available)
Light- white, grey, cream, pale brown (1 lbs available)
Mix- a mix of all the colors. (2 lbs available)
(see a quick knit up of some quickly spun bulky alpaca here:

~I trade dollar for dollar~
Im pretty open to trade, but what Im looking for:
-sock yarns think: lornas laces, kppm, lotus, wild mnt., etc etc
- book loop d loop
-dpns, anything under size 3 in wood or bamboo
-silky wool andn other wool/silk blends.
-stretchy or elastic yarns (fixation?)
-lace weight-dk weight yarns- emphasis on interesting blends of fibers colors, texture, handpainted, etc.
-ball winder
-swift
-fun fiber batts/blends, novelty fibers, handdyed stuff, etc.

http://www.midnightskyfibers.com handspun and handpainted yarns, fibers, and kits.

Midnightskyfibers, you might ask a bit less for the fibers, since shipping might be the reason people haven't jumped in on this, that and the VM...should be a bit lower to get a bite, I think. Good luck!
