Fiber goods

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.   Some is sold for knitting, most is used here on the farm for handcrafting hats, scarves, rugs, table runners and other knit wear.  We also carry alpaca throws from Peru and socks made by Dahlgren in the USA.  For more information or directions to the farm, call Jamie at 603-756-3410 or email jspage02@gmail.com.  Thank you for your interest.  Shipping at cost.

$85

 

 
 

 

scarves ~ hand woven at the farm with yarn from our alpaca herd. 

 

yarns ~

Most of our alpacas are white, some brown.  Therefore our yarns are white or natural heathers ranging from light honey color to dark taupe.  I 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.

 
Dahlgren socks ~ zone construction with alpaca added to merino in heel and toe for warmth and cushioning.  Mid-weight hiking and heavier backpacking.  These socks fit and wear exceptionally well.

 

 
rugs ~ ideal for those chilly spots in the home where soft and warm is a treat for bare feet.  densely packed, 100% alpaca with linen warp, hand woven in Scandinavian design.

table runners ~ similar design, fabric is lighter weight, wool warp
