What an accomplishment!

Hi everyone!

Guess what?  I finally have all our alpaca fiber from the last 3 years washed!  I washed up the last of Bella's first fleece last night and it is currently drying upstairs in our bathroom.

It feels really good to get everything washed, cleaned, and organized - at least fiber-wise!

Now that all the fleece is washed, maybe that will motivate me to make some fiber batts for our shops . . . we'll see!

New items!

New items have been listed in our Etsy shop today!

We are now offering carded batts of 100% alpaca fiber.

First two colorways:

Zebra & Tiger



Zebra is composed of natural black and natural white alpaca fiber.

Tiger is composed of natural black alpaca and hand-dyed orange alpaca fiber.  The orange color comes from orange Kool-aid.

More batts to follow in the coming weeks!

Goodness! It's a boy!

Hi everyone!

We hope everyone has had a great start to September!  We have!

Bosox finally had her cria on Friday!  A blue-eyed white male that we are naming Fenway.

Only hours old!

Pesky flies won't leave him alone!

He is so darn cute!  We've been out to see him the last couple days, and he only gets cuter!

We are really in love with his fiber!  It is very crimpy and curly.  We can't wait to see how it grows this winter!

Bosox is a really good mom.  She liked to spit at Brian the first few hours, but she has since limited her spitting to only special occasions (like when we try to pick him up after his nap).

Bosox & Fenway (only a couple hours old)
Fenway with the herd later that first afternoon.

We'll keep you posted on how he's doing.  We'll get some more blog posts coming soon as well.  This time I promise for real!
