We are a medium size alpaca farm with 25 alpacas and a guard llama named Miss Manners. Our alpacas which are native to South America and part of the camelid family, and are very interesting animals. Each one has a different personality, and they are very fun to sit and watch.
Our alpacas provide us luxurious very warm hypoallergenic fleece to make baskets, shoe insoles, scarves, coasters, roving for spinners, felted goats milk soap, dog and cat beds and many other items. Fleece is also sent to the mill to make gloves, socks and yarn.
The alpacas are sheared in the spring, the fleece is then sorted, washed, dried and carded and felted to make finished product at our farm.
Our farm is easy to find and only a mile or so off the main highway, so come by to see the alpacas and a small demonstration of how the fleece is transformed to finished product. And don't forget to say Hello to Miss Manners!
