About Us

We are a family farm offering french angora fiber rabbits and alpacas plus raw fiber, yarn, blended rovings and fiber products made from our own animals. We also offer warm and luxurious alpaca socks, gloves, hats, scarves, insoles and more, all grown and processed here in the US. Located in Virginia, we have been exhibitors at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival for over 15 years and have missed seeing everyone in person <3
