A Fiber Farm Blog

Anticipation!

It is an exciting time at Parsons’ Prairie Farm. Everybody knows that there are big things about to happen.  So we are waiting…….

And watching…….

And waiting some more…….

Because no one wants to miss:

More Alpacas on the way – Peggy & Dave of Alpacas at Tucker Creek, Astoria, Oregon  are sending 6 more alpacas to contribute their luscious fiber to the Farm.  We expect Cordelia, Alcatraz, Buttercup, Sweet Pea, Mari and Jeff to arrive the weekend of Oct. 27th/28th.

Announcement of Parsons’ Prairie Farm Fiber CSA – I know it is late in the year, but there is no time like the present to introduce the Fiber CSA with the 2012 clip.  The fiber is back from the processor and I can’t wait to show you what we have to offer.  Look for more details coming soon.

Holiday Farm Open House – Sunday, December 2, 2012 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.  Put it on your calendar!

2012 Cria Fleece – I have just sent all the 2012 cria fleece off to Shepherd’s Mill for processing into fingering weight yarn and  I am already standing at the door waiting for UPS to come down the drive to bring it back to me.   This yarn is going to be beautiful, ranging in color from white to dark fawn.   I would love for it to be back in time for the Holiday Open House but we may have to wait another week or so.  It is going to be gorgeous!

Our first farm Livestock Guardian Dog (Great Pyrenees) will arrive after the first of the year.  The little fellow (he’s little right now anyway) was just born a few weeks ago at Wing and a Prayer Alpacas, Amity, Oregon.  He will spend the time he needs with his mom and then will stay another few weeks to be trained by the older, more experienced LGDs at the Coleman’s. 

I look forward to posting details about all the above as I have more information.  In the meantime, keep watching!
