Alpaca Ranch Closing

Posted by on Sep 7, 2015 in News

OK, if you can’t go to Salida and can’t stand a weekend without fiber, here’s an opportunity for you!

From Kathy Gilliland:
My husband Dale and I own Diamond Valley Alpaca Ranch and are in the process of selling our Ranch and are having a large, pre-moving sale on September 12th & 13th from 10:00 to 4:00 each day. We have a huge selection of roving and raw Suri alpaca fiber (blankets, neck & 2nds & 3rds), many colors but predominately white. Great for dying! We are giving away the 2nds & 3rds and may donate some of the other fiber as well to loving hands. We also have 26 Suri alpacas that we are selling and have a couple that we would give away to good homes. All must go so we are motivated to sell and will consider all offers. The website to check the details on the alpaca offering is http://www.openherd.com/farms/216/diamond-valley-alpaca-ranch..

Dale has also been a collector of many things over the 37 years we have lived on the ranch and we are selling many of his acquisitions (misc tools, furniture, signs, toys, foose ball table, lumber, etc). There truly will be something for everybody!

I hope you can get this invitation out to your members and that some will come see what we have to offer & take home some great treasures.
