Hi....... Marg and Dave and alpacas, dogs, cat, chooks, mice....................
We breed alpacas, having been in the industry for 8 years. Curently we have 23 alpacas, the majority of which are huacaya. We have a mixture of colours, including rose grey, and a multicoloured grey. Our first rose grey female threw her own rose grey baby.......... isn't she clever!
I (Marg) makes the felt ....... hats, bags, pictures, biros, soap.......... anything - you name it. I card the wool using a drum carder, and make felt using mainly alpaca fleece, but also incorporate sheeps wool, mohair, silk, soy fibre, again..... anything on hand. Apart from felt making, I love embroidery, spinning, weaving........ virtually any textile and paper crafts.
I now has 4 spinning wheels including an electric one, and very old folk art one which is more for show than use, but does work. From time to time we have either spinning wheels , drum carders , or looms for sale.
Check out the pages........ we have animals for sale from time to time, including entire males, wethers, and older and younger girls. Most of our animals are registered with the Australian Alpaca Association. Marg is happy to take orders for felt pictures, bags, hats or whatever you may choose or supply fleece........ carded, dyed, spun. Please ask if you have any questions regarding the animals or the felt or other products that I make. I have a large supply of fleece on hand, both alpaca and sheeps wool and can dye it (hopefully to colours required!)
I have a limited supply of Mohair and most of that is from my older goat Charlie, who has gone to live with friends now. We live in Kilcoy Queensland.
You can check out our blog http://nebodama.blogspot.com/ which was was created several years ago. It has more pictures of the animals specially those born and the older females and other craft that Marg does.
