|Working with their
fiber is one of the great pleasures of raising alpacas. It's
soft, lustrous, durable, warm and wonderful to handle. We shear
our alpacas in the
spring and send their fiber to mills to be spun into yarns and
roving. Some of the yarn is used here on the farm for
handcrafted hats, rugs and other knit or woven items. We plan to convert a shed into a small
farm store next summer, to be open on Saturday afternoons in the
fall of 2012. Otherwise, I'll be taking our products to
several sheep and wool festivals and local craft fairs. If
you'd like to be kept posted as to when and where, please let me
know by clicking
We also offer a few other alpaca products - throws and mini teddy bears
from Peru, and socks made by Dahlgren and Creekwater.
For more information or directions to the farm, call Jamie at 603-756-3410 or

|felted alpacas ~ dollhouse size, hand crafted
using fiber from our own alpacas. Not suitable for small
children due to pipe cleaner framework.
Most of our alpacas are white, some shades of fawn and brown. Therefore our yarns are white or natural heathers ranging from light honey color to dark taupe. We sort the raw fiber into batches of consistent length and micron to ensure quality of yarn. Availability of color and yarn weight varies from one batch to the next.
