It all started with an allergy from touching wool. Barney loved wool sweaters, and I couldn't knit him a single wool sweater, because of my allergy to wool. That's when we found out what an alpaca was. We were excited not only about being able to touch their fiber, but how soft and beautiful it was.
Since we fell in love with the alpaca's friendly disposition and relaxing lifestyle, we made plans to own our own alpaca ranch. Our new home is one mile outside of Beaver on nine acres of beautiful farm land, and we have fun watching our animals out our back door. Both of us being elementary teachers near retirement, have this exciting and fun occupation to look forward too full time. We will never stop teaching, because we have so many interesting things to learn and share about our alpacas.
We give workshops on hat felting, and hoop knit hats. When we learn more crafts, we will offer more workshops. We give ranch tours by request and have a ranch store with fiber and related fiber products, such as; sweaters, toys, yarn, roving, batting, hats, and mittens. We offer financing, package deals, breeding, boarding, and training, of purchases. We love our alpacas and love sharing what we know with everybody. Anything we don't know we will research to find the answer. We want you to be successful. Since we are a small operation, we can give assistance and advice long after a sale.
Come on in and visit our store.
