Happily Ever After Alpacas is a small fiber farm in the foothills west of Loveland, Colorado, featuring a "six-pack" of alpaca boys (that's our youngest one, "Ralph S. Mouse," in the photo).
Owner Lisa Coalwell spins, weaves and knits, selling her products at local craft shows and online. She sells her scarves, bookmarks, fleeces, rovings and other alpaca wares at cost, and asks buyers for a $10 donation to a charity (such as her school's Relay for Life team, the local Humane Society, the local food bank, or Women to Women, among others) as her "labor charge."
What Lisa loves best, though, is educating children about these gentle farm animals (she's an elementary school teacher in her spare time). She and her husband Gib have taken their alpacas to a vacation Bible school, a local middle school, and to one of the craft fairs, where people have gotten a "hands-on" look at alpacas.
If you're in the Loveland area, call for a farm visit to meet the boys!
Our shearer came up on June 8, and of course, a cold spell blew in that night! We're happy to report all the boys came through with minimal shivering, and are now enjoying being "bare" in the sun! We harvested about 25 pounds of fleece this year, and have some nice raw fleece for sale, in quantities from one ounce to a pound or more.
