Elizabeth began with alpacas in 2011 and hit the ground running with fiber arts in mind. After quickly learning to spin, knit, dye, and weave she quickly gained a following of her products under Spotted Circus Alpacas both at festivals and online. She has vended and taught at many prestigious festivals and has been judging spin-offs since 2012 including Nationals, MAPACA, Southern Select, RAC, and more. She currently offers classes to take fleece from raw to finished goods and has taught at Magical Farms, Heritage Suri Farms, and for the Alpaca Breeders of Western New York. She has been featured in several online podcasts and vended at the Knit Girllls SSK retreat. Recently Elizabeth has published an ebook on Amazon entitled TANNING ALPACA HIDES AT HOME which walks you step-by-step through the process of working your own hides.
Elizabeth is currently breeding Huacaya alpacas with an emphasis on consistent fleeces that remain fine in grey, dark brown, and multi colors. The more odd the color the more she likes it! Elizabeth is a certified Master Classer and has sorted commercially for ACOA. She is also an accredited Spin-Off judge for Alpaca Owners Association, Inc. She enjoys talking about fiber and adding super bright colors and sparkle to everything she does.
