Fiber's coming in and we are making insoles. Who needs alpaca insoles in the summer? You do, you just might not have thought of it.
Three of the four women of Heartfelt have just returned from the FeltLOOM conference in Sharpsburg, KY. LanMark Farm (www.feltloom.com/lan-mark-farm) is the home of Don Bowles and Lynette Frietag, creators of the Feltloom. They have a beautiful farm, with an old farmhouse, a fiber mill, and a lodge perfect for the conference.
The Alpaca Owners Association (AOA) promotes National Alpaca Farm Days every year. The end of summer, beginning of fall, is a lovely time to visit a local alpaca farm, and thousands of small farms across the country participate in the event. They participate by gussying up their farm, airing out their farm stores, and on that weekend they give tours of their farms, their barns, their workshops and their stores to anyone who shows up. It is so much fun!
