Erin Murphy Knits: A Year in Review!

What a great year 2012 was for Erin Murphy Knits! In our very first year of alpaca ownership, we not only launched a knitwear company, but also bred, then delivered, our first two beautiful cria: Erin Murphy Knits Moorea and Erin Murphy Knits Don't Mess With Texas. We had our first shearing day and spun all the raw fiber into yarn. I launched a successful Kickstarter campaign, donated items to charity auctions and fulfilled orders as fast as I could knit. We also began using our alpacas for animal therapy for special needs children. In our efforts to spread awareness about the American alpaca fiber industry and these wonderful, eco-friendly animals we were featured in several magazines, newspaper articles and radio and news programs. Most importantly, our family has met some wonderful people all thanks to our beautiful alpacas. I can't wait to see what the future brings!

    Congratulations on your Kickstarter project! I am glad you are enjoying your new woolies. Our family also has an alpaca Kickstarter project in the works and we are wondering if you would be willing to pass the word along? We have reached a funding level to rescue the alpacas but could use anything additional to help with fencing and a shelter. Stop by if you have an interest.
