Blackwattle Yarn and Fibre is the creation of Angela and Matthew Smith, which they run from Blackwattle Alpaca Farm in New South Wales, Australia. “Our farm and yarn businesses are named after the truly gorgeous, black wattle trees that grow across our property,” they say. “We started our alpaca fiber love affair following the purchase of two alpacas, when we moved to the farm in 2008. The alpaca numbers grew quickly, and we now run a herd of about 70 alpacas.” Blackwattle products are available on the website and through retailers in Australia, Germany and the US.https://blackwattleyarn.com.au
