Fantastic afternoon spent at Clivewood farm with the alpacas, staff and home owners ☺️ Will certainly be coming again with the family! Thank you!
What a beautiful place and experience thank you so much Fiona and ruby, Christine and Ian. Very relaxing very informative and so much fun. Would do this every weekend if I could such a cool up and personal with alpacas thing to do in way that was so respectful to these beautiful charismatic and fluffy animals. Fabulous studio too with some fab courses and a passion in Christine that is so obviously second to none. Amazing time thank you 🙏❤️ Bought this experience for a very difficult to buy for grandad, I noticed his smile all the way round too! Not an easy thing to achieve with grandad either well done alpacas you were fabulous 💕
Hi folks...got your name from a mutual friend... TJ...we are Alpaca farmers in Canada..would love to keep in touch and share knowledge https://www.facebook.com/coldspringsalpacas/
A scarf for you, Caroline. The warp is a dip-dyed ball of your white Ryeland, the weft is a ball of your grey/brown Ryeland. Lovely wool. The scarf weighs 140g so I guess I had a 100g ball of each from you. It's woven on my 4-shaft table loom.

Tourism

The VE Day celebrations have started early here..........we will make sure the alpacas drink responsibly 😂

Not only can we process your fleeces into wool we also offer finished products. We especially like our bespoke alpaca rugs which can be made from your second cuts but if your looking for a special piece of wall art we can hand weave a herd wall hanging from small herds to large herds.

Weighing the alpacas

Coming in for monthly weighing

Think Olaf wants to be the tallest alpaca or is he just being nosey 😂

Even in these strange times some things stay the same. Our visitors have returned outside the weaving studio and nest repair is well under way.

Using self isolating to put some sparkle back into life.....well yarn at least. A lovely rose grey plyed with some lurex.

Making use of the social distancing to take some photos to update our website with. Erin got very bored with being a model.......

Just so you know the animals are being well looked after

Happy Mother’s Day from Clivewood Farm

It’s hard being a cute alpaca.......luckily no self isolating needed!!!

[03/17/20]   Following the governments recent guidelines it is with great sadness that we issue this statement to all customers.....

To all alpaca walkers and weavers

The Prime Minister announced yesterday that all non essential social gatherings should be stopped and accordingly we are cancelling walks and courses booked until 31 May. This seems to be the appropriate response for all concerned. We will continue to monitor matters daily and then look to revert to you once we are able to commit to walking and courses again.

Meanwhile we (the team here and the alpacas!) send you our best wishes.

Stage 6 of processing: Opening
So once the fleece has been washed and dried it needs to be opened up to reduce the fibre entanglement from washing. You can also blend fibres at this stage. Once it’s fed through the machine the fleece will look like candy floss in the box,it is then conditioned to reduce static for the rest of the processing.
