At Alpaca Time they produce alpaca yarns and rovings, also raw alpaca fibre for felting or crafting.
On this “Guild” weekend you’ll be able to see the machinery that makes the yarn while on your tour of the mill. You will also be shown how they make Star Trekker socks on Bentley Comet sock machines. As a bonus, any guild members who come on this weekend will receive 10% off the purchase of any regular priced items in the store.
