Wayne and I live 20 kilometres Northeast of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta on a 4 acre parcel of land. We bought our first Alpacas in March of 2000 when Wayne attended an auction. He came home with 3 pregnant females and no hay, fencing or shelter! Needless to say we were scrambling! Our neighbor supplied us with a large bale of hay and we build a small crude shelter out of scrap lumber! We immediately fell in love with these incredible animals. They each had their own personality and soon became pets! With a few more purchases, including our incredible herd sire Cinnamon, we were showing our Alpacas by the summer of 2001.
Over the next few years we won numerous show ribbons. We no longer show our animals but are concentrating on the production of the fibre. At one time we were up to 30 Alpacas. Today we have numerous shelters, a barn, fencing and 13 animals!
We will be participating in Alberta Farm Days this summer in August 2019. Check back for more information on this fun weekend
I love working with the fibre. I have 3 knitting machines, a loom, sock machine and I also spin.
Check out pictures on Our Animals page as well as our Fashions/Fibre page for information on their fibre and all the items I make with this amazing fibre!
A lot of people ask where we got the name "Ravenscrag" from. A close friend of Wayne's had an oil and gas company called Ravenscrag Resources. He died a few years ago unexpectedly from brain cancer. We chose this name in memory of him.
