Alpaca Fiber Products

 

Alpaca fiber is softer than cashmere, light weight and luxurious. Each fiber is hollow, giving it excellent insulation qualities.

Most of the garments we carry are made from our alpacas' fiber and others pooled together in North America and sent to to a small mill in New England for processing into gloves, scarves, hats, socks, blankets, totes and fabric. I also send raw fiber to a mill in Kansas for yarn and roving. I make many of these items in my spare time after apple season is over.

Our farm market store sells products that use alpaca fiber in common and unique ways. Click on a topic to see what we offer.

ALPACA RUGS AND YARN

Alpaca Rug Yarn Light Rose Gray

Alpaca Rug Yarn Dark Rose Gray

ALPACA RUG YARN — $0.50 per yard

Alpaca rug yarn is created by wrapping alpaca fiber around a jute core for added durability. Rug yarns are available in Light Rose Gray (left) and Dark Rose Gray.

The finished rug, shown below, is 4 feet by 5 feet and has 216, 4-foot woven strips or 288 yards of yarn. The finished price for this amount of yarn would be a little over $100. For additional strength, I recommend using an acrylic yarn for the warp.

A woven rug made from this yarn should give 20 years of wear according to the weaving company that makes this yarn for me. They say that they are still walking on the original rugs that were laid in front of their spinning machinery 29 years ago.

Handwoven rug 5x4ft

ALPACA HAND WOVEN RUG

Hand Crochet and Felted Rug

ALPACA HAND CROCHETED AND FELTED RUG

$50.00 each

This oval rug is made with 100% alpaca and measures 19 inches by 32 inches. It was first crocheted and then run through a needle felting machine to give it strength and durability. It is very soft, and since it is so versatile, it could be used at one's bedside and would be the first thing you step on when crawling out of bed. It would be great by the shower or tub as it tends to resist water; or use it as an inside entrance mat at your front or back door. Crocheted and felted by Sandy Binder.
