We are Tahoma Vista Fiber Mill and La Vida Alpaca, a Veteran-owned full service alpaca farm and fiber processing mill located in Yelm, WA. We specialize in handmade felted alpaca fiber rugs, coasters and trivets that we make right here in our mill from our own alpacas and locally sourced alpaca fiber. We spin custom small batch luxury yarns in our mill, and we also make dryer balls, which are little miracle workers in your laundry routine.

We carry a full line of socks, hats, scarves, shawls and gloves that are made in the USA from American alpaca fiber, sourced from small family farms across the USA.

If you're in the area, make an appointment for a farm and mill tour, or camp overnight with the alpacas in one of our pristine campsites.

    Ordered the Backpacka lightweight hiking socks, and had a chance to try them out this weekend. It was very warm for this time of year (low 80s), but even after a 10 mile hike my feet remained dry, even though there were stream crossings along the way. The socks are thin compared to what I usually wear on hikes, but thick enough to protect my feet from blisters. These will definitely be my go-to socks during the spring/summer hiking season.

    Got a rug and it is fantastic! Soft, lovely natural fibers, nice neutral colors, a quirky handmade aesthetic – and the adorable alpaca on the back! I only wish they had bigger rugs as well. It feels great underfoot, it even provides quite a bit of cushion.
