At the Alpaca Loom watch our weavers at work, interact with the alpacas and all the other animals in the petting zoo and have your kids use up all that pent-up energy on the jungle gym.
Alpaca Barn Tours take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 15:00. Alternatively, visitors are able to book a tour by prior arrangement. This tour lasts about an hour and invites visitors to meet the resident alpaca herd and learn more about the alpaca, its fiber and the processing from fiber to fabric.
Farming alpacas under the stud name Manor House Alpacas since 2004, the company started hand-weaving three years ago as The Alpaca Loom. Today, the alpaca herd has grown substantially to over 250 animals. The fibre is sent for spinning and is then either hand-woven or woven on a mechanical loom in small runs on the actual farm. The Alpaca Loom produce a variety of woven scarves, shawls, blankets and rugs using the beautiful range of natural colours that their alpacas produce. Additionally there is a selection of exquisite hand-knitted mittens, beanies and jerseys available as well as an assortment of double-knit and ultra-chunky alpaca yarns.
Open daily from 10:00 to 18:00
