In 1998, White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence, accepted a donation of their first three alpacas. Since then, the award-winning herd has grown to 50 alpacas raised for sales, breeding and fiber production. Simple and intensive fiber workshops for learning and improving skills are offered, and garments made by Sisters of Providence, volunteers and friends are sold at White Violet Center for Eco-Justice and in The Gift Shop at Providence Center at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Ind. The proceeds from the alpaca items help pay for food and routine vet care for the alpacas. For more information: www.spsmw.org.
