Vermont Fiber Mill Holiday Open House

November 24 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Maple View Farm Alpacas and the Vermont Fiber Mill & Studio host their annual holiday open house on November 24 and 25 from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. where you can meet and learn about these gentle, intelligent fiber animals. The fiber mill and studio located on the farm will also be open so visitors will also be able to learn how fiber is turned into yarn and other products. The mill processes fiber into high quality batts, roving, yarn and felt. The FeltLOOM, which creates felt fabric from carded fiber, will be demonstrated on both days.

Maple View Farm Alpacas is home to a growing herd of 23 alpacas, including 3 crias (baby alpacas) born this year. The alpaca is a member of the South American Camelid family which also includes llamas, guanacos and vicunas. All of the alpacas at Maple View Farm are Huacaya, a “teddy bear-like” alpaca with dense, crimpy fiber.
