Thank you so much for visiting my blog - please forgive me if I have not posted in a while, it does not mean that we are inactive.

Raw, Skirted, Unwashed/Unprocessed Fiber Available In Our Etsy Shop

This fiber is directly off of our alpacas; it was skirted for shows, but it is raw, unwashed and unprocessed fiber which means that large amounts of VM(Vegetative Matter) have been removed but that some still remain as well as dirt. For more information please click on the picture below and you will be redirected to that item in our Etsy Shop.


Needle Felting Fiber Variety Packs Available In Our Etsy Shop

Needle felting variety packs for all your needle felting projects! These packs include all natural colored alpaca rovings, roving that I have dyed using acid based dyes, and fiber that I have dyed and carded.  Simply click on the picture below and you will be redirected to that item in our Etsy shop where you will find all the information on that item that you need.


1 Oz. Rovings Available In Our Etsy Shop

A beautiful selection of all natural 100% Alpaca roving from the prime blanket fleeces of Grade 1, Grade 2, and Grade 3 fibers.

Carded Batts Available In Our Etsy Shop

These carded batts have been completely hand processed from shearing to carding by myself.  In some cases I have blended them with Firestar or Angelina, Merino Top, Bamboo or simply other color alpaca fiber.  When carding I have put them through 2 or 3 times to make smooth, extremely soft batts out of Grade 1, Grade 2 or Grade 3 Prime Fibers.

My Sister's New Magnolia Pod Decorations



If you're a reader of my Linda's Blog you know how much I love pine-cones and decorating for the Christmas holidays with pine-cone trees and pine-cone baskets. ;Well, when my sister told me she thought wrapping her roving around magnolia pods and decorating them would make a wonderful Christmas ornament for her Rock Garden Alpacas Farm Store I had to ask what magnolia pods were. So she showed me during my last visit. I loved them.

Well, given my sister and I are never quite done with tweaking our creations she kept working on her magnolia pod ornaments until she had them just the way she liked them. She decided to add Angelina fibers, yarn, some dried berries, dried floral, silk floral and wire ribbon bows to them and the results, shown in the collage above and the pictures below, are just beautiful, I absolutely love them and think they make for adorable Christmas woodland ornaments. I hope you would agree.

  

  

  


All of the magnolia pods shown above are available in her Rock Garden Alpacas Farm Store.  If you're interested in purchasing them please contact her here or message her on Facebook here.
