In 2002 my dear friend, Amber, and I decided to take a knitting class. I found all of the different types of yarn much more interesting than knitting and I was particularly intrigued by alpaca fiber. After several farm visits I realized I didn’t have the knowledge to run my own business so I went back to school and pursued a business degree.  In April 2006 I purchased my first alpaca, Calliope’s Isis, and my alpaca adventure began.  After nearly nine years it’s time to close this chapter in my life.  Thank you so much for being a part of Mariposa Farm Alpacas throughout the years.


Best wishes – Deborah
