There are two knit patterns and one crochet pattern including in this packet. The pattern was available during the 2013 SSYC and was designed exclusively for our Suri Alpaca/Silk blend fingering weight yarn but can be adapted for any lighter weight yarn.
As fine as or finer than cashmere, each saddle blanket is a natural, one of a kind creation and beautifully hand woven. Our blankets are single layer blankets similar to a Navajo but are much, much thicker. Every blanket is woven from from OUR ALPACAS’ FIBER in their natural colors and is hand-woven from roving vs machined from yarn thus affording extreme durability. Contact us for COLOR SELECTION!
Don't let these handsome blankets fool you. Our blankets are very popular with the ranching industry because of the great cushion and protection for the horse's back, in addition to their durability. Unlike sheep, alpacas are lanolin free which means their fiber does not collect odors or smells. Because alpaca fibers are slick (sheep fibers have scales or microscopic barbs) the blankets do not collect horse hair nearly as fast as sheep wool blankets. Equally as important, alpaca wool is so much lighter in weight than sheep wool, alpaca blankets dry much faster than heavy, wet sheep blankets. These characteristics help to ensure your blanket is dry and ready for your next ride. The more you use your blanket, the sooner it will conform to your horse. You will notice it becoming even softer and "felting" a bit as it molds to your horse's unique shape. It will naturally maintain its compression, thermal and moisture wicking properties.
58% baby alpaca 10% extra fine merino, 13% polyamid, 19% polyester, 50 grams, 110 meters.
These mitts were designed by our very own Milly Cluckey exclusively for Firwood Farm Alpacas and are absolutely gorgeous with cable stitches on top and buttons on the wrist side. They are shown here knit in the Copper Penny colorway of Astral Yarn.
If you’re looking for a rug that is easy care, durable and long lasting, these alpaca rugs are just the ticket. Made from the coarser alpaca fiber, they are naturally stain resistant, easy care and measure 2′ by 3′. Designed and hand-woven by an Austrian weaver, the designs and natural colors are beautiful.
