Soft as a kiss and warm as a hug - whether you crochet, weave, or knit you will LOVE alpaca!
Right now I have skeins in black and grey:
The Black is mixed with a hint of firestar for just a touch of glitter and to provide a bit more memory to the yarn.
The Grey is blended with 10% Tussah Silk to provide more memory.
Either is absolutely lovely!
250 yard skeins are $29, including shipping.
Woven Shawls, Blankets, and Rugs
Stay tuned for more items produced from my alpacas! I use a Ridged Heddle loom but am working with other fiber artists who can produce more complicated patterns. Soon I will have wraps, shawls, rugs and blankets!
Picture left shows a piece that can be used as a light wrap, seat cover for a six foot bench, or a table runner.
Skirted Fleece (blanket) and Roving
All fleeces have been show skirted to remove debris and I give them a quick turn in the fiber tumbler to shake out dust.
Colors include: Black, Bay-Black, Grey, and Medium Fawn
Whole fleeces (blanket) are $28.00 per pound (they are skirted and clean)
2 - 2.5 pound bags of seconds for felting are $32.00
Roving is available at $4.00 per ounce.
Prices include shipping!
I am working with a number of fiber artists who will craft one -of-a-kind items from my alpacas' yarn. Be on the look out for everything from scarves to sweaters coming soon.

Please see FAQs for pricing.
Wet felting is a process by which fleece is agitated with hot, soapy water to create fabric. Wow! - after that you can make just about anything! Right now, my wet felted products include:
shoe inserts: $10 all sizes
Christmas stockings: large $20 small $15 with out name or embellishments
quilt batting: comes in 48" wide X 81" long sheets for $80.00
Attention QUILTERS : in the past your choices have pretty much been cotton and poly (flat or puffy). Alpaca provides better insulation for a warmer quilt. It is lighter weight than wool and contains no lanolin (that is what gives wool its itchy feel). Email me for a free sample!
