Meet the Little Brothers and Sisters of the Abbey



Although these two cuties won’t be at our Festival…luxurious products will be available for you to purchase

Did you know?  Alpaca is seven times warmer than wool; it is softer than cashmere and is hypoallergenic.                                  

One of the world’s most luxurious fibers, it is prized for its unique silky feel.  These rare and amazing animals lived in extremely high elevations, with cold climate and under harsh conditions where other domestic animals could not survive.  They developed a coat with microscopic air pockets that yields a high insulation value for light weight but extremely warm garments.

This cashmere -like fleece has long been known as the “Gold of the Andes”.  For thousands of years in the Peruvian highlands, this fleece was reserved for Incan Royalty only.

The Abbey now offers this wonder fiber to you.

Our award-winning yarns come in 22 natural colors together with many authentically dyed shades for knitters, spinners and weavers around the world.

Our on line store has scarves, gloves, hats, socks and a variety of alpaca clothing perfect for the cold Minnesota winters.

Let the Little Brothers and Sisters of The Abbey wrap you in warmth and luxury this winter.

The Abbey now has 12 alpaca and 5 cria (babies) are expected this summer.
