Adorable New Alpaca Custom Fabrics and Matching Product Lines

My 11 new alpaca custom fabric designs coordinate beautifully with my new gallery products and are as follows:

Alpaca Farm Days At Rock Garden Alpacas



My sister and her husband, who are the owners of Rock Garden Alpacas, had been planning on participating in their first National Alpaca Farm Days Weekend Event for a year and that weekend was finally here.

My sister had also decided that this would also be the official opening of their Rock Garden Alpacas Farm Store. This meant products had to be made and the store had to be set up. Needless to say even with a year to plan all this the closer it got to the day the more harried everyone became.

The event was meant to showcase alpaca farms, teach the public about the alpacas and to, hopefully, sell some products. So, of course, with a two-day event the weather was important. Luckily for us the weather forecast for that weekend was beautiful sunny days.

What could be better than spending a beautiful Fall day at the farm, sitting on the hill and taking in my sister's incredible view, learning about the animals and their fiber, and doing a little shopping. Sounds like a perfect day to me.


Everything had to be ready so there was lots to do and check ahead of time. Everything needed to go as planned.  And, everyone had to be ready.


Early in the morning with so much to do my sister and her husband weren't worried about the fog. They knew it would burn off.


The farm store sign was ready.


The flower gardens were in bloom and ready.

For The Love Of Needle Felting and Wool Felt Creations

My sister and I have been intrigued with crafting with alpaca fiber since she and her husband opened  Rock Garden Alpacas and Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber a few years ago.  Since then she has been accumulating her alpacas fiber, learning how-to process the fiber, spin the fiber to create yarn, learn how to create roving, learn how to create carded batts and felt, and learn how to dye the roving.  

As a result I have been the lucky recipient of some amazing packages of unprocessed fiber, processed roving, yarn, carded batts and felt, and just the other day a wonderful package of multiple bags of unbelievable dyed roving colors.

Before all of this I was a huge fan of creating dolls and crafts with wool felt.  With the alpaca fiber I became and enormous fan of creating all sorts of dolls and crafts with alpaca roving, carded batts, and felt.  It's simply amazing how you can mold and sculpt roving.  I love it and have so many ideas in my head right now I can't keep them all straight.

Shown below are my needle felted doll designs, needle felted crafts designs, and penny rug and wool felt designs:
