This tour includes a mini-seminar on how we work with the fiber, from washing and carding, to spinning and felting, and will give you a brief history of spinning fibers into yarn. Spend some time in our store where you can find beautiful handmade items by local fiber artists made from alpaca fiber, as well as luxurious scarves, hats, gloves and alpaca-related souvenirs.
