Today we are going to introduce you to some of our fantastic Manitoba alpaca farmers who sell their products at the fibre festival.
First we have Turtle Mountain Alpacas, from Killarney Manitoba. They sell all things alpaca: yarn, rovings, raw fleece and hand knit or woven items. Owner Joan Kemp has been working with alpacas and their beautiful fleeces since 1998.
Joan says “I Love Alpacas!! I breed for quality animals and quality fibre. How special it is to create something from a beautiful fleece from your own farm.” She finds inspiration in creating something beautiful from her own animals.
Dyeing yarn and roving is her passion and she likes to “think outside the box” when it comes to different colour combinations. Make sure you stop by Turtle Mountain Alpacas at the fibre fest!
