End of Summer

It’s difficult to believe that autumn begins in a couple days!  The summer has flown by and the weather in recent weeks has been so warm that it has not prompted thoughts of fall. This morning, however, we woke to a temp of 34, a brisk reminder that the season is changing – and fast! The light is different and the trees are turning color. And at Snowshoe Farm we are busy dyeing yarn and preparing for fall fiber festivals.  This … Read More

Shearing alpacas – the next step…

Now that we’ve finished our spring shearing, we’re faced with piles of fleeces waiting for the next step.  This is just a portion of the fiber that will be sorted, skirted and sent off to various destinations: fleece shows, yarn mill, felting fiber, etc. The first thing we’ll do is pick out a few fleeces for the AOA National Fleece Show which is coming up next month. We’ll also keep in mind the fall shows and hold out from processing … Read More

Last fiber festival of the season

Wow – didn’t fall fiber festival season just begin?  Well, it’s over for us!  In past years, we’ve done more events and had a longer season. But we’ve eliminated festivals that were not convenient or good markets for us and this year scheduled only two. The last one of the season was this past weekend in Rhinebeck, NY. The NYS Sheep & Wool Festival is an amazing event and one that we really enjoy. This year the weather was perfect … Read More

Vermont Alpaca Yarn

Fall fiber festival season has finally come to an end for Snowshoe Farm. That means I can unpack all our boxes of yarn, roving, knitting needles, patterns, dyes, etc and inventory what we have left on hand for our farm store. I know I have a batch of laceweight yarn and one of our alpaca/merino/tencel blend waiting to be skeined and dyed, so we ‘ll have plenty of yarn to offer through the winter.
