Feature Friday #9

We’ve been so busy here on the farm, that Feature Friday slipped right by us, so we’re extending it to Saturday!   Our feature this week is one of our cornerstone products.  Each animal here on the farm contributes fiber to our products, and we try to honor that contribution by showcasing that particular animal in their YARN!  Although it isn’t always the easiest, or most cost efficient way to have yarn produced, we choose to process most of our fiber by animal.  There is nothing like having a customer purchase a skein of yarn from their favorite animal, and then come back with their finished product to take a picture with that animal!  If you purchase a handmade item from our store, you know the story of the animal behind it, and chances are you’ve met that animal during your visit.  Each one of these items are truly one of a kind, and it all starts with the yarn.

 

We offer our yarn in 200 yard hanks of DK/Sport weight and a few in fingering weight, in both Suri and Huacaya.  We offer yarn in an array of natural colors, as well as exclusive, indie dyed semi solids, tonals, and colorways.  Our dyed yarn is for sale only on a limited basis, and in small runs, so if you see one you love grab it while it is in stock!

Great handmade items start with great yarn, great yarn comes from great fiber, and great fiber comes from happy, healthy, fabulous animals.  We are proud to be home to a herd that embodies that idea.  Stop by and pick up a skein ( or two or twelve!) of our yarn produced right here in Tennessee; meet the animal who created that gorgeous, squishy goodness, and take home a bit of alpaca magic for your self!

Feature Friday!

Welcome back to Feature Friday, where every week we will showcase a product made from alpaca, a fiber fact about alpaca, or a fun fact about the farm.

Today, we are showcasing another of our best sellers:

Hand-woven, alpaca scarves!

While these scarves don’t come from our herd, they DO come from some of the finest artisans in the world!  Each scarf is hand-woven in the highlands of Peru, and made from the finest alpaca fiber.

These scarves are perfect for all kinds of weather!  We use them in the summer months when we are indoors in a building that might be just a bit too cool for our liking, in the spring and fall when the outdoor weather has just a bit of a nip in the air, and in the winter when we need some stylish protection from the elements.  They are the perfect size, and can be worn around the shoulders as a mini wrap, around the neck as a traditional scarf, over the head for protection and warmth, or used as a stylish accent around the waist.

The scarves come in a multitude of colors and patterns that can be perfect for men or women, and our selection changes often.  We have even had a custom color and pattern created for us in honor of our local university, The University of Tennessee.  Our one of a kind, orange and white scarves are limited, so grab them while we’ve got them!

Each of our scarves is priced starting at $45.00 each.

To get a closer look at one of these beauties, come by one of the events we will be at OR set up a time to shop at the farm store!  If you’re not local but would still like to see the selection of beautiful scarves, we would be happy to email or text you pictures of what we currently have available.
