Basket Making with Alpaca Fiber

We are very excited to announce a brand new fiber art class at Peaceful Heart Alpacas. On August 24, we invite you to join us as we weave baskets using alpaca fiber.

Using our chunky ‘rug yarns’ in a variety of natural colors, we will weave baskets around a reed frame.  The yarns are spun with all natural alpaca fiber around a cotton core.  These thick yarns give the baskets a unique texture and incredibly soft feel.

The class will be taught by local fiber artist, Karen Carney.  The class will meet from 8am-5pm on Saturday, August 24.  The class costs $80, plus a $30 fee to cover the materials. Class size is limited. A $25 deposit will reserve your space.  You can register online, by phone, or at the store.


During the month of August, we will also be offering a new wet felting class.  Join us on August 17, 2013 as we create two beautiful, 100% alpaca scarves. Using a technique that combines machine and hand felting, we will use baby and superfine rovings to design and make one of a kind scarves in natural colors.

We will meet from 1-5pm, Saturday, August 17 in our fiber art studio, surrounded by pastures full of beautiful alpacas. The class will cost $40 plus a $20 materials fee. Join us for this fun class designed specifically for alpaca farmers and alpaca lovers. Class sizes are limited and preregistration with a $25 deposit is required.
