Welcome to Paddock to Garment

Paddock to Garment, in the beautiful  Noosa Hinterland, Queensland, Australia, is an Alpaca and Silk Farm with a Spinning and Weaving Studio & Gallery/Shop, run by Karen Grady & Gordon Drake.

We farm a small herd of alpacas and raise silk worms.  We then blend these wonderful fibres to create hand spun, handwoven, one-of-a-kind garments. We produce a local, sustainable product. 

Alpaca and silk are luxury fibres, which when hand spun and hand woven look and feel stunning.  It is light weight and warm, perfect for travel and our cooler months.

Home-grown alpaca fleece, blended with silk,  yields hand-spun yarn to produce beautiful hand-woven, bespoke garments you will want to wear, and wear.  Forever Garments. The garments are sold through Paddock to Garment, the Artisan Gallery Eumundi, and Exhibitions.
