Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we can help you wrap your sweetie in the luxury of soft alpaca. Bendito here invites you to stop by the farm so you can touch and feel clothing made from alpaca fleece. You’ll love it.
Fashionably soft alpaca hats, gloves, socks and scarves will chase away the winter chill. Your favorite knitter will warm up with our premium yarns from our own alpaca herd.
We’re open most days. 10 am to 4 pm. It’s best to call ahead to be sure we’re there to welcome you. farm cell 206.510.0434
A handwoven alpaca rug will keep your feet toasty warm and guaranteed to become a family heirloom. Other gift ideas include adorable felted alpacas, handfelted locally made soaps and felted pin cushions and one-of-a-kind handcrafted handbags by local fiber artists. Let us help you think outside the chocolate box for Valentine gifts this year.
Alpaca infinity scarves give you endlessly soft comfort and warmth. These are handknit by local Whidbey fiber artists. Various colors from black and rich brown to fawn and white are available. Stopping by the farm to meet the alpacas and visiting the farm store will give you an opportunity to see what beautifully soft clothing can be made from alpaca fleece.
As the calendar turns over to a new year, we typically think about a fresh start, and maybe make a resolution or two to do something different in the new year. Our fresh start for 2015 is a new website for the farm. We will continue to post about activities on the farm, update on new offerings of alpaca yarn and products made from alpaca fleece.
Since one present under the tree this year was a fancy, schmancy new camera, we’re promising to post a lot of photos of our charming alpacas this year. We invite you to look around the new site and see some new photos as well as alpaca products in our farm store. If you see something in the farm store you’d like to have send us an email or give us a call and we’ll help you out. Our next task for the new year is to make it easier for you to shop online. But that will take a bit more time.
We have had a lovely holiday with family. It’s always a treat to have our college girl at home. We survived the adventure of a major windstorm which resulted in a couple of downed trees. Two benefits are opening up a bit more of our view of Puget Sound from our house on the hill and at least one new cord of wood for next winter. Most of all we look back and remember the wonderful visitors who have come to the farm during 2014.
Here’s wishing you all a very Happy New Year and a peaceful 2015.
