Lazy Meadows Alpacas & Fiber Mill is located on a 55-acre farm and is home to 21 fiber alpacas. We produce 40% of our electricity via our SkyStream Wind turbine. Our geothermal ground unit provides all of our hot water and heats/cools our home and mill.
Our mill's focus is to create a premium natural or acid dyed product (yarn, roving, batting, felt, or rug yarn) from your fiber at the lowest price. Through research and testing we have eliminated the use of LenoSpin (misted glue to hold exotic fibers together) and the soap we use to cleanse your fiber is an environmentally friendly orange peel base. What does all this mean for our customers? It means we can create your beautiful yarns, keeping the product all natural and leave the smallest carbon foot print possible. Dying services, internships as well as training for new mills is also offered.
Store - Our store brings affordable alpaca products along with local artists crafts to the community. We also offer our M/P homemade soaps for both wholesale and retail - let us stock your farm store!
You can visit our store to find the yarn, roving, or raw felt for your next project or pick up that one of a kind hand made item for the perfect gift. Every Monday night is knit night at Lazy Meadows from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, visit with our knitters, learn new stitches or get ideas for that next project. Classes are free.
The Weaving Center produces premium HANDMADE blankets, scarves, table runners, and shawls for our customers (both retail and mill) at affordable prices using your finished yarns.
