Announcement   Who are we?
We are a small alpaca farm in beautiful south central Indiana and we raise Suri Alpacas. We have 20 Suri and 1 Huacaya currently but as you know that can change with new cria and sales.

Barn to Yarn
We do process most of our own fibers ourselves and have it available in our farm store that's located inside our barn. The Farmer's Wife skirts the fiber, washes and cards the fiber and then spins it into some yarns that you can knit or crochet.

Shipping
When you purchase from us, and I calculate your shipping to be less than published here, I will gladly refund the difference to your PayPal. Sometimes it is hard to calculate exact shipping costs on handmade items as the box size and weight will determine shipping costs. Sometimes, I find that the cost is exactly as calculated in each listing but sometimes is it less....and we always refund the exact difference to you. Honestly I don't think the shipping has ever exceeded the published amount though.

I LOVE this roving! I use it for my thrummed mittens. The colors are fantastic and I get such great comments on my mittens.

I bought a $20 bump of buff colored suri alpaca pencil roving to knit for my thrummed mittens. I ordered it late Saturday evening and it arrived two days later, nicely wrapped in tissue paper. I love it, just what I was looking for and enough roving for two pairs of adult mittens. Thank you!

About

An Early Passion for the "lost arts"

When I was in 6th grade our end of the year field trip was a visit to Spring Mill State Park. That was my first remembrance of the passion I would carry with me forever. At the park were the beautiful original settler's cabins, fully furnished even with big barn looms and spinning wheels, the first I'd seen or those unusual things. I didn't grow up with them, I started knitting at a very early age, and then onto crocheting. I remember my grandmother cutting out dresses for herself using brown paper bags that she had made her own patterns out of. My grandmothers, aunts and mother were all quilters, so I came from a long line of fiber artists....just none of them were spinners or weavers.

About 20 years ago, I purchased my first loom a Union 36 Floor loom, an antique. I learned how to weave about 5 years later and love it. The only thing left to do now was learn to spin yarn. How do you start spinning...you buy a herd of alpacas. We researched and now have 21 alpacas with which I spin yarns to sell here and in our farm store. I now have 3 spinning wheels, and 2 looms in our home with enough parts parts to make 4 more in our barn loft, so you see it is a passion.

Although I do not know a lot of my families genealogy, since our heritage was Irish/Scottish/Wales, I'll bet that we raised sheep and did spin the yarn and weave fabric from them.

    I began my passion very early, knitting at about 8 years old, I loved all the fiber arts. Upon visiting Spring Mill State Park when I was in the 6th grade and seeing the huge barn looms and spinning wheels I fell in love even more with the lost arts

Hoosier Heartland Alpacas is a small farm in beautiful south Central Indiana and we are dedicated to raising fine fleeced Suri Alpaca in lovely natural colors. My husband and I shear once a year using a shearing table, which is very gentle. The fiber is hand picked, sorted and then washed and carded, then spun. I also hand dye, spin, knit, crochet and felt luxurious items from the fiber.
