New Easter Items Made from Alpaca

We have added three new items to our store made from alpaca just in time for Easter.  We have two styles of hand felted Easter Bunnies, one in all white and the other with bright Easter eggs and red capes.

We have also added two cuddly, soft, alpaca rabbits.  They are made in the same way as our alpaca teddy bears.


You can see all our new alpaca Easter rabbits, as well as our new selection of spring colored alpaca scarves online and in the store.  Just click on the pictures to be taken to our website to see the selection.

Virginia Classic

It is show season, and David just got back from the 2014 Virginia Classic.  He took three alpacas (Elise, Wild Bells and Augustine) up to Lexington, Virginia to compete in the 25th anniversary Virginia Classic Alpaca Show.  This alpaca show was the first we attended in 2005 when we were beginning to research raising alpacas, and is one we have participated in many times.

This year, our star of the show was Peaceful Heart Tennysons Wild Bells.  She won First place in a class of 8 white juvenile female alpacas (6-12 months), then went on to win the Color Championship (against the first place white female winners of each age group).  Wild Bells is out of Lord Tennyson and Snobelle, and is a lovely little girl.  The judge commented on her correct conformation, fineness and great brightness.

Peaceful Heart’s Elise took Second place in her color group, and a First place with her younger brother Peaceful Heart’s Augustine representing their mother Lystra in the Produce of Dam class.  Produce of Dam judges the consistency of quality of two offspring of the female entered (Lystra never even had to leave the farm to compete).  Lystra is the foundation dam of our farm and has given us an incredible number of  beautiful offspring, including Lord Tennyson.  Finally, all three alpacas represented our farm in the Breeder’s Best Three category, and brought home another First place ribbon.

We are very proud of them, and David who attended this show by himself for the first time.  He did a great job representing our farm, and caring for the alpacas.
