****** WHERE TO BUY BIRD FARM ALPACAS WARES THIS YEAR ******
I loved my basket-making day with Emma. As a complete novice, I wasn't sure how far I'd get but was delighted to go home with something that actually resembles a basket! Emma is a great teacher, very patient and relaxed, and good company with the other participants made it a lovely day. I'm looking forward to returning in future.

AVAILABLE SOON ! WELSH ALPACA TWEED CAPS ! Made with fibre from 'Dolly' the alpaca and her friends and modelled here by Rodney (Mr Bird Farm Alpacas ) =)
Alpaca being a hollow fibre is naturally much softer than sheep s wool. Interestingly it is also much stronger and warmer than wool. Being water resistant alpaca material easily wicks away moisture making it less likely to absorbs smells. Classed too as hypoallergenic being lanolin free this highly prized fabric is ideal for hats, jackets and throws. Historically reserved for the Inca royalty alpaca is now recognized universally as an eco fabric so we are VERY proud to be promoting our own WELSH WOVEN ALPACA products.
