We invite you to join in the fun! Learn, Love, and Laugh while you visit alpacas (and us), spin a yarn, shop, relax and enjoy a bit of life at Sierra Rose Alpacas! Our farm gift shop and boutique will be open. As part of celebrating everything alpaca, we will have felting demo’s, spinning corner, fiber art demo’s from Farm to Fabulous (10:30am). Come learn about alpaca care and more! Check out our schedule here.
Tours of the ranch will be conducted throughout the day. You will have the opportunity to meet the alpacas and to feed them. Bring your camera to take some selfies! Leave your dogs home please.
We encourage beginner and advanced fiber artists to attend. If you spin, knit, crochet, or do felting, you are invited to bring your craft and share it with others. Enjoy spending time at the ranch, watching the alpacas, making new friends while sharing your art with others.
