Raising funds to pay for the care of the rescued llamas and alpacas in the sanctuary is always a challenge, and with so many charities competing for a limited number of donors, we try to do things a little differently, by providing something of value.
Fibre Arts Bootcamp or FABinBC is a sister company to Llamas in the Raw Sanctuary, which cares for rescued camelids, more commonly called llamas and alpacas. Funds raised from the fiber arts workshops provided by FAB, as well as income from the sale of Mega Hooks and our ‘Build-Your-Own’ series of plans (Build Your Own Indian Head Spinning Wheel, Build Your Own Fiber Picker, Build Your Own Salish Loom & Build Your own Fiber Tumbler) all go to the upkeep of the Llama Sanctuary.
These giant knitting needles are used for making rugs, blankets or highly unusual garments and since they all have hooks carved in one end to help handle the stitches, they also serve as crochet hooks.
All Mega Hooks are hand crafted at the Llama Sanctuary in those spare moments between earning a living and caring for the llamas. We have learned to pack a lot into each day!
Mega Hooks are being shipped all over the world and are available from our online store.
