I regret to inform you that Hollywick is closing. I simply cannot replace the knowledge and skills lost with Kathy’s passing over two and a half years ago. I am trying my best to find new homes for the remaining alpacas.    

Fall 2023 updates

After many years of drought–even exceptional drought–we experienced two major storms to end 2018 and begin 2019. The first storm on Christmas night was a blizzard that dumped significant snow. The accompanying winds created 3-4 foot drifts all over the property, making it difficult to shelter and feed the alpacas […]

The First Real Winter in Years

  The first batch of alpaca yarn from shearing in May 2017 just arrived and will be available in our on-site Farm Store starting Thursday, December 21st. We have a variety of colors from Bracken, Magic Marker, JJ, Hope, Bay, Fame and Honour. We blended the natural alpaca with bamboo […]

Just Arrived! New alpaca yarn from our 2017 shearing.

Summer’s arrived and we’re still waiting for the monsoons to provide relief from the heat. While shearing certainly helps, the alpacas don’t mind having their legs and bellies sprayed with nice cool water. In fact the first few times we spray them each summer, they all rush to be first […]

Shearing 2016

Welcome to our new Hollywick Farms website! It’s spring in New Mexico and a time of renewal. The weather is constantly changing. It’s hot, it’s cold, it’s calm, it’s windy from one minute to the next. The alpacas are in nearly full fleece, so they are not ready for the hot (mid-70’s) […]

Welcome to Our New Website

We’re now gearing up for the 2016 East Mountain Fiber Farm & Studio Tour. This year, the Tour will be held June 11th & 12th from 10am to 4pm. That’s a departure from the normal “weekend after labor day” as we wanted to avoid conflicts with some popular fiber events […]

East Mountain Fiber Tour 2016

We started off the fall season by bringing Sunset Hills Zathura, multiple champion in both halter and fleece, to our farm and breeding her to Xanadu P Mistral from Sundancer Alpacas. We expect a beautiful fall cria!                     We’re also excited […]

Zathura joins us for the winter and NEW sock yarn!
