Ashculme Textiles

Galleries, Museums and Collections

A Wagga Wagga mother and daughter duo sure know how to pack a lot into their alpaca farm. Roswitha, a passionate quilter and craftswoman, alongside her daughter Fiona, the alpaca guardian, weaver, spinner and fabric lover, welcome you to Ashculme Textiles.

Eight resident alpacas call Ashculme home, which is located just 15 minutes from Wagga’s city centre.

A visit to the farm includes viewing the woolly animals and learning how their fleece gets turned into quality yarn for use in products lovingly hand-made at Ashculme, or slightly further afield.

Open every Tuesday, you will find several wooden weaving devices known as floor looms waiting for you in the workshop. Discover the art of Saori weaving, a technique lost over time from Japan dating back to 1913. After a quick lesson, you can try your hand at making a scarf, shawl or wall hanging in no time at all.

Ashculme’s vision is to produce true paddock-to-product items that have travelled no further than 300 kilometres.
