Marcia MacDonald's Profile
We are a well established alpaca farm, that the whole family is involved in, right down to the littlest members! We raise our alpacas using organic principles and have a very focused breeding program- white fleece that stays fine as the alpaca ages. This provides us us with lots of high quality wool. All alpaca wool is not created equal, it takes years of work and planning to produce consistent high quality fleece. It has been fun, rewarding and educational.
We have a line of our own yarns, and make beautiful hand knit and felted items. We dye all that white fiber with natural dyes only and grow many of our dye plants on the farm,
Synthetic dyes are petroleum and coal tar based products that are produced using strong chemicals that produce hazardous waste. Textile plants are heavy energy users contributing to greenhouse gases worldwide.
