Looking for a free, fun weekend activity this weekend? Get out of town and get some fresh air: alpaca farms all over the country invite you to come celebrate National Alpaca Farm Days. Tom and Mette Goehring will be hosting spinning and knitting demos and providing tours of their cottage mill at Ranch of the Oaks. You can see pictures of the ranch and mill on the July 23rd blog post. Nothing is more enjoyable than a day under the oaks.
See where the yarn we used for the natural dyeing workshop came from: Cecilia Secka of Sweet Water Alpaca Ranch has some new baby cria to show off- feel their soft fleece- along with hand-knit alpaca garments by Christine Zacho.
Of course sweet-faced alpacas will be awaiting your visit at each location.
