The Exchange

We have 3 pet alpacas on our farm. We need help with processing raw alpaca wool into yarn. Using a drop spindle and spinning wheel you will make the raw wool into yarn. Once the wool is spun we will show you how to set the wool in hot water and once dry roll it into a ball ready for knitting or weaving. No experience necessary though is preffered. Full training provided.

Rules

Community Principles
Krishna Eco Farm is run by a spiritual community that promotes inner peace and sacredness of life. This requires a peaceful environment. To create and preserve this sacred space and show respect for ourselves and to others we request everyone to follow Three Golden Rules during their stay:
-To cultivate compassion and refrain from meat, fish and eggs
-To respect and preserve the sanctity of the community by practicing decent and responsible behaviour, following a respectful dress code and refraining from sex life
-To embrace our healthy lifestyle by refraining from all types of intoxication and stimulants (cigarettes, caffeine drinks, alcohol, illegal drugs, visiting pubs) during the stay (exceptions are an allowance to smoke or take caffeine drinks outside of premises)
