Saori weaving with alpaca fibre
Welcome to Galifrey . . .
OUR FARM SHOP IS NOT OPEN AT THE MOMENT AND WE ARE UNABLE TO HELP CUSTOMERS WITH YARNS AND PRODUCTS - WE LOST OUR HOUSE IN A FIRE AND ARE NOW LIVING IN WHAT WAS THE STUDIO AND THE SHOP!
WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE BUT IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME FOR US TO GET BACK ON OUR FEET.
Galifrey Farm and Galifrey Alpaca Textiles Farm Shop are located at Ballalaba, 25 kms outside of Braidwood, New South Wales, Australia.
We run 80 alpacas on the farm which is designed and managed according to permaculture principles. We are committed to sustainable practices and also to helping others with permaculture design services.
Galifrey Alpaca Textiles is a specialist supplier of luxurious alpaca yarns and fibres for all textile arts and crafts. We also have a range of hand woven, knitted and felted products and clothing and naturally dyed items for sale. You can visit the farm shop on our property or view our current catalogue and place an order with us.
