Alpaca 101:

 

Learn about the history of the alpaca, why we raise them and how we care for them. You’ll learn some of their quirky traits and other interesting facts.  You may hand feed the alpacas if you like; this is a great 0pportunity for photographs! This tour includes a mini-seminar on how we work with the fiber, from washing and carding, to spinning and felting, and will give you a brief history of spinning fibers in yarn. Spend some time in our boutique where you can find beautiful, handmade items by local fiber artists made from alpaca fiber, as well as luxurious scarves, hats, sweaters and gloves.

 There will be a craft for everyone to do.

 (Absolutely no pets allowed inside the gates of the ranch, even if left in the cars)
