Our Fiber Animals
We have seven Huacaya and two Suri alpacas. We shear them once a year in the spring and send their fiber to a local mill to be processed into yarn, roving, or core spun.
They are sweet, gentle animals who tolerate visitors especially when there are treats involved.
We have 12 sheep of different breeds including Finn and Finn crosses, a Bluefaced Leicester, a CVM, a Cormo/Corredale cross and two Icelanic lambs. We shear them once a year and send their fiber to a local mill to be processed into yarn or roving. They are good- natured, friendly animals who will follow you around like puppy dogs, especially when there are treats involved.
We have two llamas who are sheared once a year.
Their fiber is processed into yarn and corespun.
Llamas are in the same family (Camelid) as alpacas, camels and vicunas.
They are usually bigger than alpacas and their fiber is usually more coarse.
We have eight Angora goats who are sheared twice a year. Mohair comes from Angora goats.
These are energetic, friendly animals who love meeting new people.
