Campton Hills farm opens for shopping, meeting alpacas

CAMPTON HILLS – Fiber artist Susan Waldron invites the public to meet her alpacas and consider gifts made from their fiber from 10 a.m. to 4 pm. Nov. 25 and 26 at Waldron Grove Alpacas Farm, she announced in a news release.

Guests can learn more about alpacas and the luxury fiber they produce, but they can also find unique handmade gifts of originally designed alpaca clothing and accessories, the release stated.

Because of its soft texture, alpaca fiber is sometimes compared to cashmere, the release stated.

Alpaca fiber is as warm as wool but not as itchy, yet it is a third of the weight of wool, the release stated.

It contains no lanolin and is naturally hypoallergenic, the release stated, as most people who are sensitive to wool find that they can wear alpaca, the release stated.

Alpaca fiber comes in 22 natural shades and can be dyed any desired color, the release stated.

Admission and parking are free. More information is available by calling 847-888-3934 or by email at susanwaldronart@gmail.com.
