AboutAfter spending some time volunteering in Peru, we fell in love with alpacas and their luxurious wool. We started with 8 alpacas and they are kind of like potato chips. Once you have one, it is difficult to stop. We harvest the wool once a year. Corinne is a certified classer and sorter of alpaca wool so she meticulously sorts by micron, grade, and length determining the best end result for each batch. Some of our end products include yarn, rovings, socks, insoles, mittens, hats, scarves, dryer balls, and duvets. When meeting potential customers, we often warn them “once you go alpaca . . . you won’t go backa”. Repeat customers are our testimonial to this. Our love for alpacas and our trip to Peru have woven a very special connection. We sell handcrafted wooden Christmas ornaments to raise money to buy a live alpaca for a family in Peru each Christmas. By donating an alpaca or two each year, that wool will not only keep a family warm, but the extra wool can be sold or crafted into clothing, baskets, and rugs to be sold at the market to generate income. Inspired by our commitment to minimizing our footprint while giving back to the people of Peru, our motto is T(h)READ LIGHTLY. Some of our end products include yarn, rovings, socks, insoles, mittens, hats, scarves, felted soaps, dryer balls, and duvets. We also offer all kinds of fibre arts workshops at our farm. Alpaca Tracks T(h)read Lightly is owned and operated by Corinne Cote and Kathy Enright.
