Here's a little history on Country Gables
We moved to Calgary in 2000, shortly after our first grandson was born. In 2005, we sold our house in the city and bought 5 acres out in the country. That spring, we attended the Acreage Lifestyle Show in Calgary, where we met an alpaca breeder, this was the perfect opportunity to get "an alpaca". But we quickly learned - first thing - you don't get just one alpaca - like us, they like company! So, before our house was even finished on the acreage, we had fenced the property and our first four alpaca boys arrived. Today we have 9 happy alpaca and two Bichon Frise (small white fluffy dogs) that own us!
What you need to know
Most of our yarn, quilt battings and rovings are made in the natural colours as you would see them on our alpaca boys; you could probably tell which one gave up his fleece for you! But, for your convenience, we do offer some dyed yarn as well. For those of you that like pure fibre to craft with, we carry 100% alpaca, but we also offer yarn and roving blends, such as alpaca/ silk, alpaca/ merino, alpaca/ bamboo, and alpaca/ silk/ merino. Since the fibre is the final product for which we strive all year, we want it to be the best it can be.
