Alpaca Farm Tour + Sunday Brunch
Also visiting Cobourg & at the Big Apple
Nuevo Norte Alpaca Farm
It all started with Eric (closet knitter) and Amy (self-proclaimed fiber fanatic). After being introduced to alpaca yarn, Eric informed Amy that “surprise, surprise” there are Alpacas in Ontario. Within 10 days of visiting an Alpaca Farm, they had purchased their starter herd of 6 Alpacas (two males and four females). They now have a farm of 78 Alpacas (plus many more animals) happily gallivanting through their 24 acre farm.
Alpaca fleece is lanolin free (hypo-allergenic), it wicks away 30-35% of moisture, it is 5-6 times warmer than wool, it isn’t itchy, it’s fire retardant. and the best part; due to its fine micron, alpaca is buttery soft!
From their own alpaca fleece they make their own line of duvets, blankets, throws, travel pillows, pet beds, and many other products and you will have a chance to not only be introduced to the herd but to also browse and shop through their extensive selection of alpaca products.
