Alpacas Rock - New Line For It's Raining Doll Parties

The "dollies" and I have been having so much fun with our new "It's Raining Doll Parties" Hawk Family Line of products that we decided to create a new line of not only party decorations, but decorations for alpaca farm days, alpaca farmers, and anyone who loves alpacas.

Truth be told the "dollies" have been wanting me to do something for their alpaca "cousins"  since I visited them last fall and came back with pictures and pictures of their "cousins."  So our Alpacas Rock line of party, farm days event, custom fabric, and handmade decorations was born.

Alpacas Rock is for boys and girls birthday crafting parties, alpaca farm days events, and alpaca farmers. The Alpacas Rock products consist of graphics of some of the "dollies" alpaca cousins including CosmoMasquerade ,Sunflower, Zinnia, and Ivy. Masquerade  who is a a full Peruvian alpaca is the mascot.  His fiber is a blend of brown, black, and gray and he has a black and white face.  The "dollies" and I just LOVE his face and I fell in love with him when I visited Rock Garden Alpacas last fall.   If you'd like to read more about my visit to Rock Garden Alpacas please read my "What  A View" and my "My Visit To Rock Garden Alpacas" posts.   The Alpacas Rock as a group have their own line of graphics and a large selection of adorable products to choose from as well.

Whether it's a boys birthday party, girls birthday, crafting party, or alpaca farm days event then you've come to the right place. Alpacas Rock can provide you with easy to make cut and sew alpaca animals, beginner e-patterns that are very easy to make, easy to make alpaca animal e-printables, coloring e-books, custom alpaca fabric for making all sorts of home decor and an alpaca party products gallery with invitations, puzzles, cake toppers, kids aprons, wall decals, playing cards, ornaments, wristlets, table decorations, and so much more. We even have dartboards, skateboards, plaques and notebooks.

We also have plenty of handmade alpaca decorations like pillow, mini-quilt, ornaments, tote bags, mug rugs and so much more.  Or, if you like making your own handmade decorations we have custom alpaca fabric designs.

Alpacas Rock!
