Designers and makers of fine crafted knitwear
Our main aim is to increase good herd stock in the country. Fleece and fibre are a bonus, which is very welcome to the craft as well as fashion industry
At Helderstroom we breed and raise alpacas. We also shear, card and hand spin the fibre into yarn, which is then hand knitted, woven or felted and made into a range of stylish, warm and unbelievably comfortable garments.
We are very glad to introduce our herd of precious, coloured Suri- and Huayca-alpacas to you, as well as our first-class products made from their outstanding fleece.
Legend has it...Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing woollen fibres.
The Johannesburg Weavers and Spinners Guild of South Africa is made up of a group of people who are passionate about weaving, spinning, felting, dyeing and fibre art.
