We finally did it. We literally bought the farm and are now out in Elizabeth with the animals! Thanks to our mentors of many years, Sue and Tom Lindh of Lazy Daze Ranch!
We started with 2 alpacas and now total 39. Twelve years into the business, we are seeing the fruits of our breeding decisions. We'd like to help you with yours. As mentioned above, we have had great mentors. Sue and Tom Lindh of Lazy Daze Ranch, Mike and Michelle Swango of Eye of the Needle Ranch, and Charles and Lucy Farrah of Front Range Alpacas. Mentors are a very important part of this business and we aim to return the favor to folks who purchase alpacas from us!
Our goal is to breed healthy, hardy alpacas with elite fleece and I think we're doing just that. Take a look at my herd. I think you'll find someone you like! I agist all my animals, so, as babies are born, I must sell a few (though it pains me to). Why buy from us? We offer the best support and mentoring we can provide. We take that duty very seriously.
We also have a few alpacas who for various reasons will be not used in our breeding program. They are available at non-seed stock prices and would make excellent 4H, pet, or fiber animals.
Our yarn and fiber store opened inside Anderson's Vacuums in the late fall of 2012. We carry Majacraft, Ashford, Spinolution, Schacht, Kromski, and Louet spinning wheels and a variety of natural fibers, yarns, and the tools to work with them. Small looms are available from Ashford, Kromski, Louet, For weavers, we have coned yarns including mercerized and unmercerized cottons and wools. We are adding more all the time.
We have a large selection of yarn, including our own homegrown Blazing Star Ranch yarn from our herd. We feature many Indie Dyers including Road Trip SocknYarns, Haute Boheme, Polka Dot Sheep, Theodora's Pearls and many more. Malabrigo, Plymouth, and Brown Sheep are among our more commercial yarns.
We have a wide selection of rovings--alpaca (from our herd), camel, yak, merino, BFL, silks, and bamboo and dyed rovings from Frabjous Fibers, Hummingbird Moon, and more!
Come visit us! We're at 3424 S Broadway, Englewood, CO 80113, inside Anderson's Vacuums (just a block and a half N of Hampden, on the east side of Broadway.) We're open Mon - Sat 10 - 6 and closed on Sundays. I am usually in the store Tuesday - Thursday 11 - 5 and Saturdays after noon. Mondays and Fridays I'm out with the alpacas.
We offer a variety of classes, including Beginning Hand Spinning (both on a wheel and drop spindle) and Weaving on Small Looms.
