Blue Moon Alpacas

Shadow the alpaca

We came across these guys on our way from Bunjil’s Shelter in Victoria, Australia. Glenda and Stephen run Blue Moon Alpacas and sell undyed yarn, fibre, knits and other alpaca goods out of a small shop on their organic farm. Glenda introduced us to the alpacas – very inquisitive, handsome fellows. Since they had all been shorn for the year, 10 of them were going to work guarding sheep.

8ply Blue Moon Alpaca yarn

I walked away with a big 800g bag of 8ply yarn, which I learned would be DK weight in North America, in a natural charcoal grey. I’m thinking about using it to make Kate Davies’ Manu cardigan.

Blue Moon Alpacas don’t have a website (EDIT: they do now!), but if you find yourself in the Grampians, they’re at 340 Pomonal Road, Stawell, Victoria (phone: 03 5358 2581).
