This one day workshop allows you to weave raw alpaca fleece to make a unique rug. The rugs are 40cm x 70cm. Alpaca fibre is naturally fire retardant and as the fibres are made up of hollow shafts, the rug traps you body heat and remains warm for a while.
The looms are set for your arrival and you have a choice of white or brown fibres to choose from. In 2023 after our two grey cria are sheared for the first time, we will also have grey fibre to include too. All fibre used is carefully washed so not to felt it and is from our own herd.
This workshop is £95 per person includes lunch, refreshments, all the fleece you will need and you leave with your finished rug. The workshop starts at 9am and finishes around 4pm (or whenever your rug is completed).
