Hello local spinners!!
My name is Beth and I’m the owner of Triple T Alpaca
We are looking for vendors, demonstrators or anyone else interested in fiber arts to come join us on May 7 at our farm in Milaca.
We have our open farm event BEFORE shearing so people can see the Alpacas in their full glory!!
Contact me if your interested in selling, doing a demo or just coming to hang out.
Also welcome would be fiber animals for display. (rabbits, goats, etc)
Hi, all! Hope I’ll get a chance to visit and shop next time I come to Minnesota, but in the meantime, I thought you’d like to see these skeins I made from Deb Peterson’s great rovings, Mocha Dream and Circus. This was, I believe, the first run of Mocha Dream, which I purchased at the shop in Summer 2017. (It took me awhile to get around to spinning it, but what a treat when I finally did!) I also bought Circus at the shop in, I believe, Fall 2019.

Anyhoo, I entered these skeins at The Eastern States Exposition, the New England equivalent of the Minnesota State Fair, and won a blue ribbon for each.

Do I know what I’m going to make with these yet? Of course not. In my stash I have one more full skein of each of these, so I should be able to do something substantial. Waiting for the right pattern to leap out and grab me. 😁😁😁
I have some new colorways heading to Anoka Fiber Works next week. To make some room, all yarns that currently there are 10% off. Make sure to ask for the discount at the counter. This discount is valid until August 15th!
Do you ever offer classes/information on how to start spinning yarn? I am really interested in learning that craft, but upon looking into wheels, there are so many to choose from, and I am clueless. I do not know anyone that spins, so I am completely going into this blind :) Thank you!
Brown and Bay alpaca, drumcarded during covid first weeks and spun last week. Tabbymarie loves to be in pictures. (and that is a Mary niddynoddy, good product, thanks, Mare)
I meant to post a photo of the llama fiber.
I'm spinning up llama fiber I bought from Deb C. I plan to weave rugs. It's very silky!

We are a co-op that formed in 2012 to create interest in the fiber arts and to get locally grown fiber into the hands of local spinners, weavers, knitters, and other needlework enthusiasts.

The Anoka Fiber Arts Co-op has ‘store-front’ space at Anoka Fiber Works at 4153 C**n Rapids Blvd, in C**n Rapids, Minnesota. There are spinning wheels, looms, roving from sheep and alpacas, and lots of unique yarn. You’ll find lots of finished items that are knit, woven and felted from a variety of natural fibers. The items you will find for sale will change as the members create new things to share.

Operating as usual

What's been going around at AFW? Deb C's spindle! Here's what she's been working on. Check the captions on the photos for details of the progress. And stop in tomorrow, Saturday, 10 - 5, to check out the vendors she's spinning!
She says:
"This week I needed to freshen up my spinning, so I bought a small bag of Gotland roving (which I’d not spun before) from Wether’sfield Wool Farm and some Green Border Leicester from Ewespun Fiber Mill. I lightly hand carded them together and really enjoyed the spin with my wheel. It’s nice to take the time and walk around to check out what my fellow vendors have in their spots. Lots of goodies!"
