About

I take alpaca & silk from our farm & transform it into wearable luxury, with an artistic twist, one-of-a-kind items...sustainability in action.

Paddock to Garment - Starts with outstanding raw materials from our property: we try to ensure that much of what goes into a garment comes from our land. The up-cycled items used in garments are sourced locally in support of our local charities. It is ethical fashion: fashion with a conscience. All items are designed and created on site, with the fleece & fibre producers just metres away. The best of raw materials, innovative but simple designs, lots of craftsmanship and work, and a passion for what is beautiful.
The Garments - Are an eclectic mix of alpaca and silk, sometimes with locally sourced up-cycled items. The garments are created for citizens of the world. People who love luxury fibres, people who are inquisitive, people who appreciate an item made by an artisan and are capable of understanding the true value of classically unique. The garments are created for people who love timeless design - they are, forever garments.
The Paddock - The Alpaca & Silk farm was founded in 2012 on property that has been in the family for four generations. We started with two alpacas and a spinning wheel. Today there is a small herd of alpacas, 23 mulberry trees, more silk worms then we can count, two weaving looms, sewing machines and a dedicated solar powered Studio & Gallery/Shop.

    Paddock to Garment - that is what I do. I take alpaca fleece & silk from the animals we raise, then dye, spin & weave the fibre into sustainable clothing, ethical fashion with a conscience.
