Happy New Year

We would like to wish everyone a happy new sorry new year - not new yarn, although new yarn sounds great!! As we start 2019 we hope that you all had a wonderful 2018 filled with joy and happiness. 

Quotes I Love

Instead of writing a new year quote I thought I would share with you my two favourite quotes:

  • "We are all worms. But I believe that I am a glow worm"  Winston Churchill
  • "There is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of one small candle" Spanish Proverb
So whether you are a candle or a glow worm - this year please glow and shine brightly!!

Did you know that we also sell fibre and roving?

We have wide range of hand dyed and natural alpaca fibre and roving available on our website from the Roving & Fibre tab.
We are super excited to share this 5 star alpaca retreat that we are hosting from our farm "One Tree Hill" in September 2019!!

Fibre with Friends Retreat – 21st and 22nd September 2019, is a 2 day,  5 star ‘on-farm alpaca experience’,  being held on our farm “One Tree Hill”, Murrumbateman, NSW. Friends, new and old, getting together to celebrate all things alpaca and for those passionate about fibre, art and crafting. The two day retreat will be full of all things alpaca with lots of wonderful classes and very knowledgeable teachers!

The retreat is being held on our farm which has beautiful views of the farm, alpacas and wineries. Local wine and food will be served over the weekend. All meals will be made by the on-site chef, who will be preparing and serving some very wonderful and yummy food, paired with some equally yummy local wines.

Alpaca Adventures

From time to time I put pen to paper....well actually my finger tips to the keyboard, and I write about alpacas, the industry and my yarn. I recently added a blog called 'Alpaca Yarn - A Luxury Fibre' where I explore the many wonderful reasons why alpaca yarn in considered a luxury fibre.There I said it - alpaca is a luxury fibre!
