Maria reviewed: Warp to Weave. Design your own alpaca scarf from scratch!

"I really enjoyed a wonderful time learning to design and weave my own scarf. A big thanks to Annie, who made me feel very welcome and is a fantastic teacher (very knowledgeable and patient). An added bonus was spending time with the alpacas and I look forward to a return visit shortly."

Burnt Fen Alpacas responded:

" Hi Maria, thank you for your lovely review. It was great spending time with you and Joy and so glad you both enjoyed designing and making your beautiful scarves and meeting the alpacas. Annie ☺️"

Lynn and Jeff reviewed: Spinning with Alpacas

"I was bought the Alpaca spinning experience as a Birthday gift and had no idea what to expect. On arrival we were greeted by the sight of numerous beautiful Alpacas in the fields. Lots of different colours and sizes. Not only did they look so cute (still had their coats on), but also very inquisitive so they came to welcome us. Annie was such a good host and showed us round telling us their names as we met them. We started off in the most warm and cosy yurt. Not knowing anything about how to spin Annie explained and demonstrated techniques with lots of patience and fun and the morning flew by. Lunch in the garden was delicious surrounded by the alpacas on the upper garden was idyllic. During the afternoon session we carried on practicing with different wools, having the cheeky alpaca coming to the open door to give us the once over. We found the whole day so much fun and relaxing and so I would recommend this to anyone who loves alpacas. "

Burnt Fen Alpacas responded:

" Hi Lynn and Jeff, thank you for your lovely review! It was great to meet you both and I really enjoyed your sense of fun and enthusiasm for whatever came through the door - alpacas included! Hopefully see you both again sometime. Annie"

nicky benton-simcock reviewed: Warp to Weave. Design your own alpaca scarf from scratch!

"Fantastic event! Annie is a brilliant teacher, friendly, attentive and super supportive. At least 2 out of the 4 on the course have been bitten by the weaving bug, me included! The surroundings are glorious and the various critters highly endearing. Food was delicious and Kurt the Yurt a very warm, welcoming and calming place to learn. Couldn’t recommend this more highly. Will be booking my slot on the spinning version next ??"

Burnt Fen Alpacas responded:

" Hi Nicky, ( although I should really say Sasha as I'm an idiot and mixed up the reviews! ?‍♀️? told you both I was useless with computers!) Anyway, that aside, thank you, thank you for the lovey review and very much looking forward to seeing you spinning next year! Annie ☺️"

"Fantastic course, Annie is such a good teacher, the alpacas are amazing and the yarn is so wonderful to work with. Really enjoyed my time in the yurt, and the lovely food was a great bonus. I even came away with a beautiful finished scarf! Highly recommended!"

" Hi Nicky, thank you so much for the lovely review - very, very much appreciated and see you spinning next year! Annie ☺️???"
