Alpaca Encounter: From Farm to Fiber Art

Visit our (almost) famous alpaca herd including our newest member born in October at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods. Learn about the origins of alpacas and why they are so beneficial to our USDA-certified organic farm. See and feel their sheared fiber and go step by step through each process that occurs after shearing which includes skirting, carding, and spinning as well as a hands-on demonstration on how to weave using a table top loom. Learn about other products made from alpaca fiber. There will also be a a chance to make your own felted ornament at the end of the experience.

Cost: $25/per person, includes felting project. (Must pay at time of registration.) The registration deadline is March 20.
