A Visit to an Alpaca Farm

I've been looking for alpaca sweaters and hats and I happened to find Irish Meadows Alpaca Farm online. It is about an hour and 15 minutes from us so Ray and I decided to visit earlier this week. They have a great retail store and over 150 alpacas in the barns and out in the fields. I loved seeing the crias (alpaca babies). I didn't find a sweater but Ray did; I found a handmade alpaca hat which I've already worn.

I wanted to share a few photos. We look forward to visiting again. 

I've been doing a little sewing and am working on this quilt. I hope to finish the top this week. 

I have more inspiration in my head and have already cut pieces for another quilt. Of course I have a pile of projects already started that I should be working on . . .


  1. Ray's sweater and your hat should keep you guys warm, alpaca is supposed to warmer than wool isn't it? Your quilt is very pretty so far. Do you have a pattern or are you designing this yourself? Happy stitching!

  2. Those alpaca babies are adorable! Sounds like you had a fun time visiting the farm.

  3. What a fun trip. My brother has a few alpacas. They even named one after me because it was born on my birthday. Your quilt is looking great! I love black, white, and gray quilts with pops of color.
