Enjoy our decadent cakes and a cup of freshly brewed coffee at the coffee shop, while taking in the stunning views of the alpaca herd, the dromedaries and Table Mountain in the background. Watch our weavers at work, interact with the alpacas and all the other animals in the petting zoo and have your kids use up all that pent-up energy on the jungle gym or go on an Alpaca Barn Tour.
Farming alpacas under the stud name Manor House Alpacas since 2004, we started hand-weaving in 2012 as The Alpaca Loom. Today, the alpaca herd has grown substantially to over 270 animals. The fibre is sent for spinning and is then either hand-woven or woven on a mechanical loom in small runs on the actual farm. At The Alpaca Loom we produce a variety of woven scarves, shawls, blankets and rugs using the beautiful range of natural colours that their alpacas produce. Additionally there is a selection of exquisite hand-knitted mittens, beanies and jerseys available as well as an assortment of double-knit and ultra-chunky alpaca yarns.
Open daily from 10:00 to 18:00
Alpaca Barn Tours are offered every Friday to Sunday at 15:00 - Meet our alpaca herd up close and find out more about this special animal and its luxurious fiber. (Alpaca Barn Tours cost R50 for adults, R25 for pensioners and children; kids under 3 are free.)
