Alpaca Meadows of Ontario opened their doors to the public over the weekend. An open house for the public was held at Alpaca Meadows and was hosted by the store owners, Julie and Matt Petty.

The Petty's say they hope to help shoppers throughout the Christmas holiday season. The Petty's held an open house the week previous, but due to bad weather conditions, they decided to hold a second open house for anyone who didn't make it.

"It's a weekend that we're opening our farm for people to come shop for alpaca products and see the alpacas," Julie said. "I also teach classes here on how to knit, crochet, felt, and spin yarn out of alpaca fiber."

"Julie processes a lot of the fiber that we grow here on the farm with the animals herself," remarked Matt. "She hand-dyes it, she spins it, takes it to yarn, or a finished product."

Alpaca Meadows is located at 1200 Rock Road, Mansfield.
