Artisans handcraft garments using alpaca fiber in New Jersey


[Music] my name is Nick and I’m the owner of blue bird farm alpacas we usually like to start with the difference between llamas and alpacas because the llamas tend to give our alpacas a bad reputation alpacas are members of the Candlewood family they do spit but they’re not apt to spit at you but for the most part you should leave alpaca farm today unscathed by any alpaca script the cool thing about Bluebird Farm alpacas here in Pete pack New Jersey is that not only that you get to walk around and take selfies with those alpacas but you also get to wear products handcrafted by local artisans and alpacas fiber is really one of the finest natural fibers there is we we share that alpacas once a year typically in the beginning of May we will take that fiber and we will send it out to a mill in West Virginia and they will process it into skeins of yarn essentially spinning the fiber into yarn each individual scheme is labeled and we will take this gain of the arm along with many others and we will distribute them to local artisans they in turn will make things with them to be anything from hats to gloves to scarves to shawls to blankets something that goes on and on you can you can produce anything without packing fiber that you can produce of any other wool each individual garment that we produce when the local artisans produce is from a particular alpaca that you can meet at Bluebird farm and know who you’re actually wearing by reservation people can go online to our website and they can reserve a time where they can come to the farm and others simply take a tour which will give them the opportunity to go in with interact with photograph feel do selfies with the alpacas there’s also another option where they can actually take an alpaca for a walk we refer to that as halter training and that’s somewhat on the limited faces but that’s something like they can certainly do
