|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
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

|felted hats ~
hand knitted and felted. Very warm and soft. Best tried
on in person, because they don't stretch like knitted hats.
scarves ~ hand woven at the farm with yarn from our alpaca herd.
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
