A special class called “Let’s Grow an Alpaca Hat”

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 hat. Sound like fun?

Here is more. The class starts April 17, 2021 runs through June 19, 2021.  We will meet each Saturday 1:00 – 4:00. We will have 6 session of instruction, one Saturday off, (May 15th, day before shearing day, May 16th you are invited)  The other days will be work on your project days with supervisions.  The class cost is $120, plus the price of the fiber you choose and supplies. Supplies you will need: hand carders, spinning wheel or drop spindle. I will be making arrangements to help those that will need these supplies. Other supplies can be brought from home or purchased in class.

The class size is very small only 6 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.

So to get started enroll in the class. You can pay for the whole class now or may a non refundable deposit, (store credit) Call if you have any questions 717-359-9989, or email juliesalpacas@gmail.com.
