A special class called “Let’s Grow an Alpaca Scarf”
It’s a special journey taking the alpaca fleece from the alpaca to a finished product. Hands on all the way through.
Here’s what we will do in this class. First class we will adopt an alpaca. That means you will visit with your alpaca at the beginning of each class. You can take pictures, ask questions, learn to halter and walk it. Then on the first session you will purchase some fiber from your adopted alpaca. You can purchase 8oz, 16oz, or the whole fleece. We will be making yarn and knitting your scarf. Sound like fun?
Here is more. The class starts April 16, 2022 runs through June 18, 2022. We will meet each Saturday 1:00 – 4:00.
We will have 8 session of instruction, these Saturdays off,
April 23 off MAPACA Show in Harrisburg Farm Show Complex and May 21,
May 15th shearing day you are invited.
The class cost is $170, plus the price of the fleece you choose and supplies.
Supplies you will need: hand carders, spinning wheel or drop spindle, nitty noddy. I will have all the supplies you need for sale in the shop. If you happen to have supplies then bring them along.
The class size is very small only 4 participates so let me know if you have interest. First voice gets the first space.
We are going to meet the alpaca, buy it’s fleece, wash it, dry it, skirt it, tumble it, spin it into yarn, dye it, and finally knit it into a scarf that you can brag about.
