Vilte workshops in Tasmania

Wow, Tasmanian Fleeces have been flying up and down the coast of Australia for the Vilte felting work shops.

Vilte arrived mid April in Tasmania to a very keen reception from felters.

The work shop was hosted by the lovely June Hope (Tasmanian Felt Artist) and fibres and goodies were supplied by Tasmanian House of Fibre.

A good time was had by all and many new skills added to everyones bag of tricks.

Suri and Alpaca blended wool tops or rovings

Feel like trying something new and exciting?

Try our new blends of Suri, Silk (this could be Tussah Silk, Soy Silk or Mermaid Silk) and Merino of many colours.

The Suri content is from our high quality Suri’s raised on our farm here at Mount Roland Alpaca’s.

We also have blends of Alpaca , Silk and Merino of many colours, the Alpaca fleece is also from our Alpacas on our farm, you will notice that these blends are named after an Alpaca that has the same coloured fleece used in the blend.

We have trial spun these blends and we feel that you will love them, the colours are amazing and they are selling fast.
