War knitting and it's place on the homefront

With remembrance day around the corner I'm always humbled by those around me that have/do serve. We take it for granted as it's our everyday and pays the Bill's. The majority of our friends and family serve and it's become common place for us.
As a fibre artist I also remember the woman on the home front that poured their heart and souls into the war effort and knitting for their loved ones overseas. Ww1 was the first war fought on this scale, encompa...Read Full Post »

Is alpaca fiber really all that? Yup! Here’s ten reasons why you should you consider adding alpaca yarn to your stash.Read Full Post »
Bacio's Arribella, Cria #1 of 2016

This morning we were surprised to see Bacio in labour! After weeks of watching her belly roll and checking every few days I had determined to let her do her thing and stop checking 4x a day. I looked out the window and saw something unusual with the herd and it clicked - "BABY"!.
I ran out with the camera and clicked a few photos. We hung around to ensure everything went smoothly. Bacio is not a first time mom and knew what she was doing and birthed without a problem. Aribella was bo...

Last night our beautiful girl Brenna left us. It was sudden, a shock and I pray no pain. A giant hole remains where she lived in our lives and it will be difficult, if ever, it heals. She was my shadow and got me through more than I can count. We were blessed with 6.5 wonderful years with this amazing creature. Moving her to our farm was the best thing we could have done. She took to it like a charm and loved all the baby animals. While I was pregnant, she was glued to my side and then when L...Read Full Post »

Keeping warm for winter

All of our posts lately seem to do with settling down to bare winters best. I suppose it's what happens when I'm snuggled under a blanket with any number of house animals, a roaring fire on, some knitting, a tea and a view of our pastures covered in frost.
We're looking forward to the arrival of some additonal stock in time for Christmas, or whichever winter holiday you celebrate. Socks (both high and low cuff), hats, touques, mittens and gloves will all be in stock! Make sure you p...
Settling in for Winter
|Posted by email@example.com on October 27, 2015 at 8:25 AM||comments ()|
We woke up this morning to a thick layer of frost on the ground. Winter is starting to settle in. Although the Alpacas are still enjoying sun bathing in the mid afternoon, morning and evenings are chilly. With a roaring fire and a cup of tea I'm watching our girls eat frost coated grass. Hay is free fed, but our ladies are tenacious and will eat every last bit of grass until the winter cold has killed it off. Even with access to a barn full of straw to bed down in, our silly 'pacas still pref...Read Full Post »
