Why Alpaca?

Adorable, low-impact, sustainable, and local. What could be better? Alpaca fiber is as soft as cashmere, hypoallergenic and warmer than wool. It wicks moisture well so those cozy alpaca socks are even suitable in the summer. We raise our alpacas for their fiber (fleece), which is shorn once a year in April or May and then we work all year to make yarn and handmade products from this fiber. A couple times a year we take our alpacas on the local show circuit. The judges seem to like both our fiber and our animals as the collection of ribbons is growing. We even earned a Reserve Champion Banner at the National Alpaca Fleece Show, Advanced Fleece awards and a handful of highest scores in National Spin-off.  Despite the ribbons, we get the greatest enjoyment when our customers come back and tell us how much they love their alpaca products!

Yarn and Rugs!

Stock up on yarn! In the crazy spring=summer weather your knitters love to stay busy, we have a large selection of 100% USA alpaca yarns. We stock handspun yarn as well as mill-spun yarn. Grab some for yourself or your favorite knitter/crocheter for some happy project time. It is always a good time of year to buy some alpaca yarn. I personally enjoy knitting with super-soft local yarns while the kids enjoy ball games. We focus on creating the best possible quality from local alpaca fiber. Call us, visit our facebook page, or send us an instant message to set up an appointment to shop.
ALPACA RUGS! Super-soft and amazing rugs made from our fiber.  Truly an indulgence. Worth every penny. 100% USA made.
