The AirLoom!
Alpaca Scarf Grade 3 Bulky

My Original Felted Hats

Extreme Sport Alpaca Socks

Welcome to the Artful Alpaca! We feature the works of artists that have chosen to depict the alpaca in their respective media, as well as wearable art made from alpaca fiber, and handspun and mill-spun yarns. We also offer a wide range of alpaca products. Too, we have designed the AirLoom so that non-knitters can experience the joy of creating beautiful knitted items with a minimum of time invested in learning to knit!

I became a handspinner long before I met my first alpaca. Now, I sort and grade our fiber prior to processing, so our yarns will have a superior handle for our customers. I am constantly spinning, dyeing, knitting and felting my one-of-a-kind hat creations. While my own designs/patterns may be repeated, the yarns and the dyes will never be the same thus the hat that emerges is unique.

I do contract handspinning for weavers looking for unique yarn, but I am always designing yarn and, if it is not designated for a project in my mind's eye, it will be for sale.

Our bricks and mortar store is open weekdays from 10 am to 5 pm. On weekends, we do travel to farmers' markets.

My father and I are both handweavers now, so we offer handwoven products.

Visa and MC are accepted on purchases at Artful Alpaca at Hidden Hill Farm.
