About Alpaca Loom Coffee Shop & Weaving Studio

Alpacas have long been farmed for the beautiful wool that they produce; which is soft, warm and luxurious. The Manor House Alpacas has been farming these interesting and undeniably cute creatures since 2004. The farm is situated in Klein Landskroon, next to the acclaimed Landskroon Wine Estate near Paarl. This part of the Cape Winelands is not only visually spectacular, but also boasts a huge variety of activities and attractions.

After The Alpaca Loom was instituted, this farm began weaving with the wool produced by the herd, which has now grown to more than 200 animals. The alpacas are shorn in September. The wool is then spun and hand- or machine-woven on site. This beautiful textile is then used to create colourful plush blankets, scarves, shawls, and rugs; as well as hand-knitted mittens, beanies and jerseys. In addition, there are alpaca yarns (chunky and double-knit) available for purchase here.

The Alpaca Loom Coffee Shop & Weaving Studio is a relatively new addition to the farm, and is designed to provide visitors to the farm with as much exposure to the industry and its gorgeous produce as desired. Savour a deliciously decadent sweet treat and a cup of freshly brewed coffee at the coffee shop, while taking in the stunning views of Table Mountain.

Tours of the facility are conducted on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 15h00. Alternatively, visitors are able to request a tour at a time that is convenient to them by prior arrangement. This tour invites visitors to learn more about the process involved to create the stunning wool garments, as well as to meet and interact with the fascinating animals that produce them.

All of this is situated less than an hour’s drive from the city centre of Cape Town, the capital city of the province of the Western Cape. Therefore, the Alpaca Loom Coffee Shop & Weaving Studio is easily accessible and central.
