Come visit a local alpaca ranch where you will see how you, too, can learn many of the skills necessary to take raw fleece and transform it into either a finished product which you or your family can use or a product which can be sold to fiber artists who will produce the finished item. Learn how you can acquire knowledge either for free on line or at a nominal fee from other fiber artists. Equipment on display and demonstration will be a skirting screen, picker and carder. A dyeing area will be open for viewing also.
Location and Space
We chose to build in Eldorado so that we could have ample room for our herd and yet be close enough to modern conveniences which are only 30 minutes away in Santa Fe. From our location we have gorgeous mountain views and large pastures for our alpacas to run as much as they desire. Our large studio is located on the end of our barn so we can host knitting and fiber groups plus do our own fiber processing in comfort. There is a bathroom for visitors. We love to show visitors the joy of raising our peaceful animals who make it possible for us to produce not only yarn for knitters and crocheters, but also finished products for us to see at the Eldorado Farmers' Market and seasonal shows in the area. There's plenty of parking here at Wide Sky Ranch. As you approach the electric gate, enter the numbers on the box and the gate will open. Should the parking appear to be full by the barn, you may park on either side of our lane which leads to the fenced area. There is a side gate for easy access.
