Happy Labor Day to everyone!  09/03/2012

Well, it's the start of a new month and a new page for Shady Nook Alpacas.  In the past I have made some products with our fiber but it has been considered a hobby.  As time passes I find that the alpacas, our farm and my felting projects have become so much more improtant to me.

The texture of the fiber is a pleasure to work with and the amazing results that can be achieved by both wet felting and needle felting are endless.
