Welcome to the blog for Hollyhock Farm Alpacas.

Welcome to my blog.  I’m so glad you are here.  I hope I can give you an idea of what life on an alpaca farm is all about.   I (Teresa) am working full time ‘on the farm’.  In 2006 I left my ‘corporate world’ job to stay home and concentrate on the alpaca business.  Since then, I have learned so much and life has led me places I hadn’t even known existed!

Our farm is small.  We strive for 10-15 alpacas on our small property. I spin, knit, felt, dye and weave – mostly with alpaca fiber.   I learned to knit as a child.  And have learned to spin and weave since alpacas became a part of my life in 2002.  I had a great deal of fun learning to dye yarn with Kool-aid and many natural dyes.  As time progressed, I moved on to using most commercial dyes – the possibilities are endless. 

I’m looking forward to sharing my projects, my experiments, and my alpaca’s escapades with you.   And I hope you stop by often, read my posts and leave your comments.

I would love to have you sign up for my monthly newsletter and check out my facebook page.   Thanks for stopping by.

Let’s become blogging good friends!
