It's been three weeks since Thea and Olly went away.
Having 14 alpacas, it might seem easy to lose sight of who is not there.
In general, that is true, but we noticed.
We brought them to a farm in Maine recently to meet herd sires so that we'll have more cria running around our pasture next year.
But that wasn't the only reason; both Thea and Olly are half-sisters, have sweet personalities, good conformation, and beautiful coat characteristics -- all the qualities we would like to see passed on to the next generation.
We chose herd sires that we believe would compliment Thea and Olly with color, body conformation, coat qualities, and good personalities.
The hope is that we made good decisions and the cria next year will be beautiful with wonderful personalities and gorgeous, colorful, crimpy coats for making yarn, dryer balls, and the softest birdnest fluff EVer!
The Hampton Falls Farmer's Market has been canceled today due to the weather.
It was the last one of the season, so it is a little disappointing that this weekly event is now over for the season.
It was a wonderful opportunity to meet new faces and make new friends with both vendors and customers. That is also how we met some of you! =)
You can count on us to be back at the farmer's market in 2023.
YARN ON SUNDAY!
Our yarn is here!
Yes, our own herd's skeins are in da house!
Whether you knit, crochet, or weave, working with 100% alpaca is a joy, and wearing it is a luxury.
Alpaca yarn is lightweight, and you will be surprised how warm your finished project keeps you without overheating.
Its breathable properties and soft against your skin feel, make it comfortable to wear during high-energy outdoor activities by pulling moisture and odors away from your skin. It's also water resistant and will keep most of the wetness away as well.
Come see and feel the soft, squishy softness of the YARN FOR YOURSELF at our next event:
located at: 17 Lafayette Road, North Hampton, NH
There will be more than just alpaca yarn.
Plan on finding lots of socks, hats, headbands, dryer balls, and other alpaca-made products both hand-made on the farm and from farms in Peru with all the same benefits as our yarn.
