Our new herdsire arrived a week ago and it took him about 5 minutes to be "top dog" lol. His name is "Archer"...the brother to our "Robin Hood" who passed away last month. It makes me so happy to see him every day. I miss Robin so much, but it helps a little to have a small part of him still here with us through his brother :) He has his first date with our girl Anna in 2 more weeks...and then it's 11 LONG months of waiting. ;) Our colorful girl "Fiesta" is due to go to NY sometime in the next couple weeks to meet her beautiful boyfriend. Fiesta is the most adorable alpaca on earth with her big fuzzy ears and huge eyelashes. I'm really excited to see what she will give us too :D

I'm also excited to announce my new Foxy Fiber Club...available thru my etsy shop

I've put together a few different packages for all spinner/felter needs. One club available offers 4 oz of yummy alpaca fiber delivered every month for 12 months. The other packages offer smaller amounts or washed fiber instead of raw. This would also make a terrific Christmas gift for the special fiber-holic in your life! ;)

Yesterday I received the custom pillow I ordered from mybonnie on etsy... She created it from a photo of herdsire that passed away a few weeks ago. Bonnie's work is amazing! I will treasure this pillow forever :) If you have been thinking about a pet memorial... please visit her shop :D
We are busy getting ready to be a part of our first National Alpaca Farm Days Sept 26 & 27. AOBA uses this event as a way to educate the public about alpacas & their fiber. I'm really looking forward to having people stop by and meet our fuzzy friends. I will have my booth set up with fiber gifts for sale...and I'll also be spinning away.. so if you're in the area..stop by and say hi! :)
