Weave an Alpaca Scarf

Removing the first scarf from the loom.

Removing the first scarf from the loom.

We have just finished our first two "Weave an Alpaca Scarf" classes. This class is designed for you to learn to weave. You learn the basics and terms of weaving and the basic weave pattern. It's just a fun easy class to learn the basics.

Colleen Harvey-Arrison taught our first classes. She pre-warped the looms with alpaca yarn. The students chose two colors for thier scarf which sported a few small stripes.

Everyone had a great time and completing their alpaca scarves. Some of the students made scarves for themself and others were gifts. The weather outside was stormy and it even snowed (very unusual in Redding). Unfortunately, it kept us from visiting the alpacas and their new crias. We stayed inside and enjoyed watching nature from the warmth of the house. Everyone had a great day.

We already have requests for additional classes. Watch our website for new dates and times.
