New to the Autumn Hill Llamas & Fiber farm...Sponsor A Llama! By sponsoring a llama, you will have the opportunity to support our farm and the animals. We are a small family farm, and all of the proceeds from the sponsorship (and our Etsy store in general) will go towards feeding and medical care for the animals. Sponsoring a llama is the perfect gift for any animal lover in your life!
Duque was one of the first four llamas that joined our farm back in 1999. He was my sister's show boy for many years; they earned numerous champions together! Duque is extremely sweet and well trained. He is now retired from the show ring, but is still a cherished member of our herd. He will be 20 years old this year! Sponsoring Duque will help us buy the arthritis medication that he needs to get around comfortably.
There are two levels of sponsorship available for our llamas.
With the *Farm* sponsorship you will receive a picture of your llama (or alpaca) and a biography about them, as well as information about our blog where you can keep up to date with the happenings on the farm. You will receive a llama fiber gift (a pair of felted insoles or a bird nesting ball).
With the *Fiber* sponsorship you receive all of the benefits of the farm sponsorship, as well as the entire fleece that was sheared from your llama that year. Llama fiber is naturally hypoallergenic and contains no lanolin (oil found in sheep's wool). It is much softer and warmer than sheep's wool. Now that Duque is older his fiber isn't suitable for much other than insoles and bird balls, but I have a beautiful handspun and hand knit shawl that I made from his fiber a few years back. If you purchase the fiber sponsorship for Duque you will receive the completed shawl.
