It Really Is Simple Gifts Farm!!

A snowy day is quiet on our farm! There is a fire in the hearth and beautiful views surrounding us! We are busy within our home but stop often to soak in the beauty of the snow! Enjoy your day!!!! Remember to make us a favorite....

Happily Spinning Through Winter!!!

A little sleigh full of hand spun alpaca to fill kits or offer as skeins!! Lovely to work with alpaca from our flock of five!!! Heavenly!!!

Two Tone Alpaca Shawlette

This shawlette spices up any outfit. Notice the button on the shoulder and the drop stitch design! Made this design for the holidays. You, too, can make your own hand knit accessory! This is so likable and looks good over most clothing! It is so versatile you can wear it anytime and probably can use through three seasons!!

Oatmeal Alpaca Tunic with Cowl Collar!

Have received so many compliments on this comfy tunic. Designed for Medium or Large. Notice how softly the alpaca falls in folds from the bodice. You like? Kits for sale!!

Alpaca Tunic in Two Versions-Big Hit!!!

My friend and I sent some beautiful alpaca to a fiber pool and had them spin up this DK weight alpaca which we have been playing with ever since! This is the brown jewel neck version that has been designed and made kit ready. The style compliments all shapes!!!

Solution to a bad hair day!!

This alpaca hat is handmade from felted alpaca. Will be making just a few more for Sheep and Wool Festival in April. As you can see it not only keeps you warm but hides what may be a not so good a hair day underneath it!!

Happy Valentine's Day from Simple Gifts Farm

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you! Winter is upon us. Our farm animals actually enjoy the snow and cold temps. Here is a close-up of The Man! My wheel has been spinning lots of alpaca and by the looks of Man there will be more fiber to come this Spring!! Have been designing and knitting too! We will feature the following new designs at CT Sheep and Wool Festival. Of course, you can contact me if you want to start on one of these kits....
