Kids crafts at the Washington County Fiber Tour

Washington County Fiber Tour

You will enjoy many unique experiences on each farm so try to visit them all! Try your hand at some old time spinning and weaving. Fiber dyeing in traditional and modern techniques with different mediums will be demonstrated. Talk with the crafters and see how the human hand makes each item unique and a treasure to own. Come out and see the new baby lambs playing in the green grassy fields. Maple sugar houses, crafts, gift shops, and friendly animals are around every corner. There is so much to see and do we can't possibly list it all, you will just have to spend the day relaxing and enjoying the farm with us!

Sunset Ridge Alpacas

A unique experience awaits you on our farm! You will be able to see how raw alpaca fleece is transformed into beautiful garments from start to finish.

You will also be able to try your hand at traditional fiber arts like drop spindle, spinning, wet felting, needle felting, and weaving.

Have all of your questions about alpacas answered. If you are serious about alpaca ownership, make an appointment to come back to get some hands on experience with the animals.

Watch as the animals are trained to maneuver the obstacle course, then cheer them on to the finish line. I hope your favorite alpaca and handler win!

Bring your camera and you can get your picture taken with these beautiful animals!

Finish off your trip with a visit to our gift shop featuring a wide selection of fine alpaca garments as well as hand made specialty items and stuffed animals.

Lite refreshments will be available in the picnic area.

Come out to enjoy the fresh spring air and get your hands on an alpaca!!
