Susan Cook, Blue Ribbon Accoyo Alpacas
1. What is your website? and email?
3. Where are you located?
4. What do you make?
Alpaca yarn and rovings (all fiber is from my alpacas, but other than my raw, skirted fiber, the yarn and rovings are mill processed)
5. Do you make fiber/yarn/etc. full-time?
Farming is a full time job, but I also work part time at a church.
6. How did you get into making stuff?
Alpacas are wonderful animals that provide a warm and extremely soft fiber, so it was only natural to take the fiber from the yearly shearings and process it into beautiful yarn and rovings for others to enjoy.
7. How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been in the alpaca breeding business for 10 years, and began selling yarn and rovings about 5 years ago.
8. Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in the alpacas. They have such a calm demeanor that each day spent working with them is like meditating.
