SWF Fiber Innovations (Star Weaver Farm) is dedicated to promoting the benefits of alpaca fiber as well as other exotic fibers such as yak and cashmere.

We recently sold our herd of alpaca (except 1!) and relocated to southwest New Mexico when John retired. John has a passion for (and a degree in) Astronomy. New Mexico offered excellent dark skies and open lands allowing him to enjoy the night sky while also giving me great inspiration for color and design when it comes to textile production. We both love our new location and I look forward to opportunities it brings.

As always, Wini's focus has been the fiber side of things. Selling off the herd gives her the time to devote to additional fiber research, education, training, sharing and judging. New business models and ideas are in the works. Stay tuned!!

Welcome to SWF Fiber Innovations

Thank you for visiting our site.

Since our move to New Mexico in 2017 our focus has become more directly related to fiber instead of raising livestock.

Our interests are now based upon education, judging, sorting/grading, and product development.
