Ashculme Textiles is a weaving studio on the outskirts of Wagga Wagga. Home to a growing number of both alpacas and floor looms - currently standing at 8 each - it is where Fiona weaves and dyes the alpaca yarn, or runs her workshops.
Open by appointment, visitors are welcome to call in and see the looms, large and small and view the handwoven alpaca range. From scarves and cowls, to ponchos and capes, each piece is woven on site and the yarn dyed with the local flora and other natural dyes.
For a small fee, you can visit the alpacas and hear the full journey of the yarn, from paddock to product, carding, spinning and dyeing and weaving. Or maybe book in for a full class.
Ashculme Textiles - where colour, texture, creativity, imagination & nature are spun, woven and sewn together
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
