Winter 2021 Events
It's Alpaca! Shopping
Valentine's Day is on its way! On Saturday, February 13, the barn and the It’s Alpaca! Boutique will be open from 10:00AM to 5:00PM, and guests will have the opportunity to visit the resident alpacas, as well as to see and purchase luxurious alpaca gifts. Wouldn’t your sweetie love a gift of alpaca? You’re sure to find something that no one else will be gifting.
Our It's Alpaca! Boutique carries a wide variety of alpaca products, including sweaters, hats, gloves, yarn, stuffed animals, and other toys and accessories. We invite you to make an appointment to visit our alpacas and then take home a little of that alpaca softness for your very own.
It's Alpaca! is usually open the second Saturday of every month from 10am to 5pm. We're also open by appointment. Check back here for updates.
Birthdays at Shepherd's Purse Alpacas
The winter is not a popular time to have alpaca babies, and we don't have any alpaca birthdays in February or March! We figure we should always celebrate somebody's birthday, so we just celebrate our January baby all winter! In case you missed seeing her in January, stop by and wish a Happy Birthday to:
- Maple Brook Dina, on January 29th.
This photo shows Dina at the AOBA auction when we purchased her at around one year old. She's grown into a very pretty girl! When you stop by be sure to visit Dina and wish her a happy birthday!
Ribbon-Winners at the AOA National Fleece Show
The next time you visit, congratulate SPF Harrigan, SPF Ines, SPF Happy Boy, The Wild Rover of SPF, SPF Weapon of Choice, and SPF Sweet Marie for their ribbons at the AOA National Fleece Show Spin-off! We are especially pleased with Harrigan and Ines, who took home first place ribbons, and Happy, Rover, and Weapon, who took home second place ribbons!
Everyone received high praise for the soft handle of their fleece and the quality of the resulting handspun yarn. It is gratifying to see our breeding program get some great feedback for our fiber production!
Here's Happy Boy looking at the girls! Come on out to congratulate the winners and see how macho he has become!
