Knitting with Alpacas in San Gregorio
11 am - 3 pm
Experience the life cycle of a skein of yarn! We're visiting Valhalla Yarns' ranch in San Gregorio, where Signe Ostby and her dedicated team raise alpacas, cormo sheep and goats near the beautiful coastline.
You'll have a hands-on adventure, learning about animal husbandry in this region, different qualities of sheep and alpaca fleeces, and which fibers are best for particular projects. And of course, there will be adorable animals!
Registration includes the tour and presentation, a box lunch, and a delightful swag bag. You'll receive driving directions via Hwy 92 or 84 shortly before the event, and you will be contacted in advance regarding any dietary requirements. Dress in layers and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes for walking on dusty or muddy ground (with a chance of manure.)
