  • During the craft activities you will handle a range of fibres, including alpaca and wool. This course is not recommended for those with sensitivities to these fibres.

  • Fibres can adhere to clothing during the craft activities, previous participants recommend wearing lighter colours and clothes that brush down easily.

Our alpaca fleece craft and walk experience has been designed for alpaca addicts everywhere and makes a great gift for any curious crafters or true fleece newbies.

Learn the traditional skills of needle and wet felting using our fantastically fine and luxurious “home grown” alpaca fleece followed by a tasty rustic lunch. Your experience is completed by a gentle afternoon stroll around our picturesque farmland leading one of our friendly alpacas. This unique day will leave you feeling full of alpaca calm and fleecy craft knowledge.
