Every April, David and I, Tanya, shear our own alpacas. It is their once-a-year haircut! No animals are harmed in the process and it is necessary to shear them to avoid heat stress. After shearing, fleeces are cleaned and prepped for hand spinning. Each skein of yarn is unique and comes with a picture and story of the alpaca from where it came from.
Our alpaca farm is different in the fact that David and I are completely hands on in every aspect of our farm. We shear, vaccinate, train and raise our alpacas. David builds shelters and constructs fencing. I am the shearer, hand spinner and knitter/crocheter.
Alpaca yarn is warm, luxurious and extremely plush. Our alpaca yarn is completely homemade and is from our own animals that we clean, card, spin and wash! Our colors range from fawn, light browns to dark bays and even true black. We also have a range of grey available from smoke to grey charcoal. If you have never worn alpaca you should give it a try! It is extremely soft and warm but lightweight! Stay warm with silky soft alpaca without 15 layers of clothing! Our customers rave about how warm their feet stay in our alpaca socks.
